A huge 11 players charged by the match review panel

A huge 11 players have been charged by the match review panel this week.

Of the 11, 10 are Super League stars with York’s Jack Teanby the only Championship player charged from the Challenge Cup quarter-finals.

Among the 10 Super League stars, Hull FC’s Josh Griffin and Leigh Leopards’ Kai O’Donnell have been referred to tribunal and face huge bans of over six games.

They both received red cards at the weekend.

Meanwhile, the other player to receive a red card, Kaide Ellis, is banned for three games and fined £250 for a head butt.

Zak Hardaker, who received a yellow card, is banned for one game whilst teammates Ava Seumanufagai and Tom Nisbet join him so Leigh Leopards will certainly be stretched.

There are three fines handed out, including one to Ellis to exacerbate his punishment.

Salford Red Devils’ Amir Bourouh has been cautioned for other contrary behaviour.
