Castleford full-back Jordan Tansey has been accused of making deliberate contact with a referee.

The former Leeds player has been charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel with a grade C offence arising from the Tigers' 19-16 First Utility Super League win over Hull on Sunday and will face a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday evening.

Tansey, who is facing a potential ban of two to three matches, is one of seven players charged by the panel following the weekend's round five matches.

Hull prop Micky Paea has been charged with a grade B dangerous tackle on Castleford winger Richard Owen of Castleford Tigers in the last minute of the game at the Jungle.

Catalan Dragons' former Wigan prop Jeff Lima could become the fourth player from the Perpignan club to be banned so far this year after he was charged with a grade C dangerous tackle on Kyle Amor during his side's 40-22 defeat at St Helens.


The Dragons were without Olivier Elima, Julian Bousquet and Louis Anderson for that match due to suspension.

St Helens forward Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook is facing a grade C charge of making dangerous contact with Catalan's former Saints stand-off Leon Pryce in the same game.

Huddersfield full-back Scott Grix and loose forward Michael Lawrence are both facing grade B offences arising from the Giants' 66-18 win over Bradford, whose forward Chev Walker has been charged with striking scrum-half Luke Robinson with his shoulder.

Walker, Lawrence, Grix, Paea and McCarthy-Scarsbrook are eligible for early-guilty pleas but Tansey and Lima will appear before a disciplinary tribunal.

The match-review panel also issued formal cautions to Ben Flower (Wigan), Jordan Turner (St Helens), Adrian Morley (Salford) and Dean Collis (Wakefield).
