Five players have been charged with punching following two incidents in the Kingstone Press Championship fixture, Batley Bulldogs v Swinton Lions on Sunday May 12.

George Flanagan of Batley has been charged with two offences, one Grade A and one Grade B; his team-mate Ash Lindsay has been charged with a Grade B punching offence.

Swinton players David Mills and Gene Ormsby have also been charged with Grade B offences; their team-mate Gavin Bennion has been charged with Grade A punching.

All five players are eligible to submit Early Guilty Pleas with the exception of Flanagan, who must appear before the RFL Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday on the Grade B charge.

Cracking fight though.

Made the game for me. Apart from that it was dull

I'm not sure how punches are graded but two or three of George's uppercuts were bang on the money.

We all know how poor we were last time we didn't have these two on matchday (against Leigh).
