Greg Pick suspension

Greg Pick has been suspended for seven games after leaving the bench following an incident between Callum Pattison of the Sheffield Steeldogs and Donotas Kumeliauskas of the Peterborough Phantoms. The rules state that players leaving the bench will receive match penalties and Pick does have previous offences that have been taken into consideration. However, Kumeliauskas shows no intention to fight from what I can see and Pattison even seems to throw a couple when Kumeliauskas is down and trying to cover up. Whilst the decision to suspend Pick may be correct, I know that as a Tigers fan, if Pattison (or anyone else) had done something similar to one of our most important players, I would have wanted Bennett (or anyone else) to have left the bench and jumped in. Considering what caused Pick to leave the bench, I think the suspension is overly harsh.
