Widnes back-rower Gareth Hock is facing at least a three match ban after being found guilty of making deliberate physical contact with referee George Stokes.
The incident happened during the 36th minute of Widnes’ 36-0 win over Workington in the Challenge Cup fifth round on Sunday.
The Grade D charge carries a suspension tariff of three to five matches.
Huddersfield’s Joe Wardle has been charged with a Grade C offence of sustained punching following his red card against Leeds, while team-mate Leroy Cudjoe and Rhinos stand-off Danny McGuire were charged with Grade A punching offences in the same game.
Wardle, Cudjoe, Kaufusi and James are all eligible to submit Early Guilty Pleas in relation to their respective offences before 11am.
