Bradford forward Olivier Elima has entered an early-guilty plea after being charged with committing a dangerous tackle on stand-off Lee Gaskell during his side's 12-8 Super League win over St Helens on Saturday.

The France captain was charged with the grade B offence by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel.

Elima was making his first appearance of the season after recovering from injury and will now miss Sunday's home game against Salford.

Huddersfield second rower Jason Chan was given a formal caution for making dangerous contact on Castleford winger Nick Youngquest, which earned him a spell in the sin-bin during the Giants' 42-4 win.

Tigers prop Nathan Massey was also issued with a caution for a dangerous tackle in the same game.
