Three players charged with verbally abusing match officials

Two Kingstone Press Championship players will appear before the RFL Disciplinary Committee next week after being charged with committing offences during recent fixtures.

Keighley Cougars forward Paul March has been charged with committing the Grade B offence of using foul and abusive language towards a match official during a Championship game against Featherstone Rovers on Thursday March 7.

Workington Town prop Jamie Thackray has been charged with the Grade C offence of using foul and abusive language and aggressive body language towards a match official during a game against York City Knight on Sunday March 10.

Hull KR Academy player Ryan Devaney will also appear before the Disciplinary Committee after he was charged with a Grade D offence for using foul and abusive language and questioning the integrity of a match official on Saturday March 2.

All three players were charged after the incidents were viewed by the Match Review Panel, which also deemed sending off was sufficient punishment for Dewsbury Rams player Karl Pryce, who was dismissed following a striking incident in a game against Barrow Raiders on Sunday March 10.
