Leeds scrum-half Rob Burrow has been charged with making dangerous contact with Wigan forward Ryan Hoffman.

The 28-year-old, who at 5ft 5in is the smallest player in Super League, will face the Rugby Football League's disciplinary committee after the incident involving the 6ft 4in Hoffman.

Burrow has been charged with the grade B offence of "using his body to forcefully twist, bend or apply pressure to the limb or limbs of an opposing player in a way that involves an unacceptable risk of injury".

He was cited by the RFL's match review panel, which has also charged Wigan prop Andy Coley with the grade A offence of running in and punching during the same match - a 26-24 Warriors win last Friday.

Jake Emmitt of Castleford and Warrington's Michael Cooper will both face charges of fighting during the Wolves 48-18 win over the Tigers.

Catalan Dragons prop David Ferriol could be banned for up to three matches as he has been charged with a grade C offence following his red card against Bradford on Saturday.

The France international has been accused of making contact with the head or neck of Bulls second-rower James Donaldson.

Crusaders forward Hep Cahill has been charged with a late tackle on Huddersfield half-back Kevin Brown, while fellow Dragons player Jason Chan was issued two formal cautions for separate offences in the same match.
