St Helens could be without two more players after Kyle Amor and Jon Wilkin were charged with offences from last weekend's set of Super League fixtures.

Amor can enter an early guilty plea after being given a Grade B charge for a reckless high tackle against Wakefield, but Wilkin cannot for a similar offence in the same game.

Both are in danger of missing the huge clash with the Leeds Rhinos on Friday night, adding to Nathan Brown's selection headache.

They are already without injured scrum-half Luke Walsh and centre Jordan Turner as they look for a seventh straight win to start the season against a dangerous Rhinos team sitting second with five wins and a draw.

Three other players were charged with Hull captain Gareth Ellis sanctioned for a shoulder charge on Widnes captain Kevin Brown - his is a Grade C offence, as is that handed to Hull KR forward Justin Poore.

Poore has already been banned this season and will have to face the RFL Disciplinary Committee, while Ellis can enter an early guilty plea by 11am on Tuesday.

Widnes' Willie Isa has also been given a Grade B citing for recklessly striking Hull's Aaron Heremaia.

Grade B offences carry suspensions of one-to-two matches while the more serious Grade C offence can lead to a ban of three matches.

The RFL also announced six further players had been given formal warnings; Warrington's Chris Bridge, Scott Moore of the London Broncos, Huddersfield's Ukuma Ta'ai and Widnes Vikings trio Ben Kavanagh, Danny Galea and Willie Isa for a separate incident.
