Clubb to face tribunal over Unacceptable Language

1 0

Wigan Warriors forward Tony Clubb has been charged with the Grade F offence of “unacceptable language/abuse based on national or ethnic origin.

This means he will be required to attend an independent Operational Rules Tribunal on Tuesday. He faces a minimum eight-match ban if found guilty.

In total, three players from last Thursday’s match between Wigan Warriors and Hull FC have been charged following the match.

Two Hull FC players have also been charged with Grade B offences: Jake Connor with a high tackle, and Brad Fash with dangerous contact.

Both carry a one-match suspension, although the players have the option of challenging at the independent Operational Rules Tribunal on Tuesday.

Jordan Dezeria of Catalans Dragons has also been charged with a Grade B offence, of a dangerous throw in the French club’s victory at Wakefield Trinity last Friday, which also carries a one-match suspension.

The Catalans half-back Josh Drinkwater has been charged with Grade A dangerous contact in the same game, which does not carry a suspension, and Salford’s Danny Addy has been charged with a Grade A high tackle in his team’s defeat by Castleford, again with no suspension.

In addition the MRP imposed cautions on Castleford’s Grant Millington for a reckless trip, on Hull’s Mahe Fonua for the same offence, and on Wigan’s Ethan Havard for dangerous contact.
