Eight players charged by the RFL

EIGHT Super League players have a date set at Red Hall after being charged for their actions in last week’s Super League action.

Of all the players charged, Wigan’s Ben Flower and Catalans’ Tony Gigot have been given the most severe punishment, having been accused of Grade C offences.

Flower has been charged for an alleged dangerous throw on Widnes’ Aaron Heremaia, the same accusation put against Gigot for a tackle on Ryan Atkins.

If found guilty, both players could be suspended for three matches.

Meanwhile, Hull KR duo Maurice Blair and Iain Thornley have been charged with Grade A dangerous throws for a challenge on Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook.

Ashton Sims has a date set with the disciplinary  panel after being handed a Grade B charge for a high tackle on Jason Baitieri, with Salford’s Justin Carney joining Sims after being charged with a Grade B dangerous throw on Danny Brough.

The other two charged are Brett Ferres and Scott Moore. Both players have been charged for Grade B dangerous contact.
