Three players to face disciplinary committee

Three players will face the RFL Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday after incidents in the weekend’s games.

Catalans forward Remy Casty will answer a charge of making a high tackle in his side’s 28-20 defeat at Wakefield on Sunday, which left Wildcats debutant Paul Johnson with an injury that kept him out of the rest of the game.

Huddersfield Giants prop Andy Raleigh has been charged with making dangerous contact with Matt Orford as the Bradford Bulls player kicked the ball in the 64th minute of last Friday’s match at Galpharm Stadium.

Harlequins RL player Ryan Esders faces a charge of making a dangerous throw on Richie Mathers of Warrington Wolves at the Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday.

Two players received official cautions over their conduct: Willie Manu of Hull for use of the knees on Matt Gidley as the St Helens centre scored in the 64th minute on Saturday night; and Heath L’estrange of Bradford Bulls for a swinging arm/high tackle on Huddersfield Giants scrum-half Luke Robinson.

The RFL have also sent a warning letter to Warrington Wolves winger Chris Riley for an attempted trip on Chris Melling of Harlequins in the 16th minute of Sunday’s match.
