Warrington duo Adrian Morley and Garreth Carvell will appear in front of the RFL Disciplinary Committee on Tuesday following incidents in the win over Castleford on Saturday.

Carvell, 28, has been charged with illegal use of the forearm on Paul Jackson in the fourth minute, a Grade C offence which carries a tariff of a two to three match suspension if the player is found guilty.

Morley, meanwhile, has been charged with making a high tackle on Brent Sherwin in the 67th minute, a Grade B offence which carries a suspension tariff of one to two matches.

Formal cautions and warning letters have also been handed out to a number of players after a feisty weekend of Super League action.

Castleford’s Ryan McGoldrick was cautioned for kicking out in a tackle by Warrington’s Richie Myler, who himself received a warning letter for stamping on McGoldrick in the early stages of Saturday’s match at The Jungle.

Wakefield’s Luke George has been warned for a grapple tackle on Leeds’ Danny McGuire, while Rhinos prop Ryan Bailey was cautioned for placing undue pressure on shoulder joint of Wildcats back-rower Glenn Morrison in the game at Belle Vue yesterday. Salford’s Rob Parker was also cautioned for a similar offence on Crusaders forward Jason Chan.

Hull KR‘s Clint Newton and Castleford loose forward Joe Westerman were warned for dropping their knees in to the knees of Stuart Fielden (Wigan) and Simon Grix (Warrington) respectively, while Hull’s Tom Briscoe was sent a warning letter for kicking out in a tackle in their win over Huddersfield.

Catalans prop David Ferriol, who was sent off against Harlequins at the weekend, will also have his case heard at the disciplinary tomorrow afternoon.
