Ablett charged for Tomkins tackle

Two players will appear before the RFL Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday to answer charges brought following incidents in their teams’ Super League fixtures last weekend.

Leeds Rhinos second-row Carl Ablett has been charged with a Grade C offence for use of the forearm on Wigan’s Sam Tomkins in the 15th minute of Friday’s 26-12 defeat by Wigan Warriors.

Salford City Reds stand-off Jeremy Smith has been charged with a Grade B offence for using foul and abusive language towards a match official in the 71st minute of Sunday’s 60-16 defeat to Crusaders RL.

Both players were charged after the incidents were viewed by the RFL Match Review Panel earlier today.

Leeds Rhinos prop Ryan Bailey received a caution for a raised knee in possession of the ball in the 24th minute of Fridays game.

Ray Cashmere of Salford was also cautioned for kicking out in a tackle in the first minute of the match against Crusaders RL.

The caution will remain on the players disciplinary records for consideration in the event of future incidents.
