Four players have been charged with punching by the RFL during Friday's Super League game between Hull and Castleford.

Hull's Mark O'Meley and Danny Tickle and Castleford pair Justin Carney and Weller Hauraki were all involved in an ugly fracas during the second half of the Airlie Bird's comprehensive 52-0 win at the KC Stadium.

Referee Steve Ganson sent off Tickle and Hauraki and sin-binned Carney and O'Meley, and all four could now face further punishment.

Hauraki, Carney and Tickle have until 11am on Tuesday to submit early guilty pleas, while O'Meley will appear before an RFL Disciplinary Committee later that evening.

Widnes Vikings forward Gareth Hock will also appear before the committee on Tuesday after he was charged with a Grade B offence of foul and abusive language to a match official during their 22-22 draw with Bradford.

Hock was dismissed for the offence and does not have the option of submitting an early guilty plea.

Meanwhile, the Match Review Panel have handed a formal caution to Hull Kingston Rovers' Micky Paea for raising his knee in a tackle during their win at London Broncos on Saturday.
