Senior in hot water for over claim

RUGBY LEAGUE: The Rugby Football League are to investigate comments from Leeds centre Keith Senior about World Club Challenge referee Richard Silverwood.

England international Senior branded Silverwood “arrogant” after the Rhinos crashed to a 18-10 defeat to Melbourne Storm at Elland Road on Sunday.

Senior has since apologised for his remarks, however, claiming: “Unfortunately I let my emotions get the better of me.”
