The Rugby Football League has asked Salford coach Ian Watson to explain his criticism of referee Marcus Griffiths at the weekend.
The Red Devils went down to a 22-8 defeat to Leeds at the AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
In his post-match press conference, Watson said: “As soon as the crowd went berserk at the referee, he just washed his hands of Salford and refereed the game in a totally different manner.
“That’s what I’m not happy about. People ask for your opinion – you should be able to give your opinion.
“Ganson needs to get in touch with me and tell me why he’s putting people in charge of a game who can’t control the game.
“I contacted him (Ganson) a few times last year and he never got back to me. We’re not Wigan or St Helens so we’re not important enough to deal with.”
Watson said he expected to be fined for his comments and an RFL spokesman confirmed that a letter has been sent to Salford seeking an explanation.
