Bridge set for lengthy ban after allegedly assaulting match official

Oldham player Danny Bridge will find out tonight if he will face a long suspension after receiving a Grade F charge for assaulting a match official.

The incident took place during the game against Keighley earlier this month with Bridge coming into contact with the referee.

If found guilty, the former Warrington back-rower faces a minimum eight-match ban which will likely end his season two months early.
