Widnes half-back Joe Mellor is the only player to be charged following the 16th round of Stobart Super League fixtures.

The 21-year-old has been handed a Grade B charge for a dangerous 30th-minute throw on Huddersfield's Scott Grix on June 3.

Mellor has until 11am on Wednesday to submit an early guilty plea, with the alternative being appearing before the Rugby Football League disciplinary panel in the afternoon.

Three players were given formal cautions, the most notable being Wigan's Sam Tomkins for kicking out at Leeds' Jamie Jones-Buchanan in the tackle during the Warriors' 50-6 win at Headingley on June 1.

Leeds forward Ryan Bailey has also been warned after using his head and hands in a tackle, with team-mate Lee Smith told off for kicking out at Brett Finch.
