Akouala charged by the RFL

Warrington forward Sita Akouala has been charged by the Match Review panel.

The Wolves powerhouse has been pulled up for a dangerous contact offence that has warranted a Grade B rating.

As a result, he will serve a one-match suspension and miss the club’s televised game with Hull FC on Friday, subject to appeal.

He has made 13 appearances for Steve Price’s side this season, playing ten times from the bench.

He has scored one try for the Wolves since joining the club from Penrith ahead of the 2018 season.

Castleford’s Joe Wardle and Catalans’ Mickael Simon have been issued cautions for striking, while the Dragons’ Greg Bird was also cautioned for a dangerous contact incident.
