Two players charged by the RFL

Halifax’s Ryan Boyle and Featherstone’s James Lockwood have both been charged by the RFL.

The pair have both been cited for Grade B offences and are likely to serve short suspensions despite having early guilty pleas available.

Fax forward Boyle has been handed a Grade B dangerous contact charge after a ‘chicken-wing’ tackle on Hull Kingston Rovers debutant Mose Masoe, which looks set to put the Robins forward on the sidelines.

Boyle, a former Castleford forward, apologised for the tackle on Twitter after receiving criticism from Hull Kingston Rovers fans.

Meanwhile, Featherstone’s Lockwood has been charged for tripping.
