The RFL have confirmed that six players have been charged with offences committed in Super League Round 9 fixtures played on Easter Monday.
Wakefield player Nick Scruton has been charged with making a Grade B high tackle on Andrew Yates in the 79th minute of the same game.
All six were charged after the incidents were viewed by the RFL Match Review Panel, which also handed down a formal caution to Anthony Gelling of Wigan Warriors for striking Josh Griffin in the 68th minute of the game against Salford Red Devils.
Ward, Scruton, Wardle and Bateman have until 11am on Wednesday (April 8) to submit Early Guilty Pleas (EGP).
Griffin and Hauraki do not have the option of submitting an EGP and will appear before an independent disciplinary tribunal on Wednesday evening.
