Five players have been charged with offences committed in Super League Round 16 fixtures staged at St James’ Park, Newcastle, over the Magic Weekend.

Josh Griffin of Salford Red Devils has been charged with Grade C punching on Widnes Vikings player Willie Isa.

Joel Moon of Leeds Rhinos has been charged with making Grade C dangerous contact on Wigan Warriors winger Josh Charnley.

Aaron Murphy of Huddersfield Giants has been charged with Grade C striking with the shoulder on Catalans Dragons player Willie Tonga.

Huddersfield player Scott Grix has been charged with Grade B striking with the shoulder on Morgan Escare.

Remi Casty of Catalans Dragons has been charged with making a Grade C dangerous throw on Eorl Crabtree.

All five were charged after the incidents were viewed by the RFL Match Review Panel, which also issued a formal caution to Jamie Peacock of Leeds Rhinos for raising his knees in a 67th-minute tackle by John Bateman of Wigan Warriors.

Grix, Murphy and Casty have until 11am on Tuesday (June 2) to submit Early Guilty Pleas (EGP).

Griffin and Moon do not have the option of submitting EGPs and will appear before an independent disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday evening.
