Wakefield’s Tommy-Lee Corke and Newcastle’s Ryan Crossley have both been referred to the tribunal after being charged by the disciplinary Match Review Panel.

Corke was charged with Grade D Dangerous Contact during Wakefield’s academy game against Castleford last Friday.

Detailing the charge, the Match Review Panel said: “A defending player makes contact with an opponent after the ball has been released by an opponent in a vulnerable position. Which causes flexion to the head, neck or spinal column on an attacking player, which poses an unacceptable risk of injury to that player.”

If found guilty, he faces a ban of between three and five matches.

Meanwhile, Crossley was referred for a Grade D Dangerous Throw during Newcastle’s Academy match against Warrington.

He will also face a ban of between three and five matches if found guilty.
