Richard Whiting and Richard Moore facing lengthy bans

Toronto ace Richard Whiting and Featherstone star Richard Moore have received Grade D charges by the match review panel.

Whiting was charged for a dangerous throw on James Saltonstall along with Wolfpack team-mate Josh McCrone, with the latter being sin-binned during the game.

McCrone has received a Grade B charge and a one-match penalty notice. He was graded at the lower end of the penalty scale due to having non-relevant record (no record showing two or more offences in the last 24 months, including at least one in the last 12 months).

And Moore was sent-off following a tackle on London hooker James Cunningham. The former Leeds Rhinos prop has been handed a Grade D charge for striking.

The charges for Whiting and Moore will both be referred to an independent operational rules tribunal.
