Wakefield pair set for lengthy bans as five players charged by The RFL

Wakefield duo Andy Yates and Scott Moore are set for long spells on the sidelines after being charged with Grade E offences, with Moore accused of gouging during the game against Widnes.

The Wakefield pair have been charged with dangerous contact and gouging offences respectively and, if found guilty, will miss a large chunk of the season.

The news would come as a bitter blow to Chris Chester’s side, who have been on a great run of form ever since his arrival.

Meanwhile, Dave Taylor has been charged TWICE  for offences at Grade A and B. Both charges were for dangerous throws during Catalans’ victory over Batley.

Dragons teammate Jason Baitieri has also been charged with a Grade B dangerous throw offence while Frank Pritchard has been charged with a Grade A high tackle offence during Samoa’s win over Tonga.
