Hull star Aaron Heremaia has been charged with a "spear" tackle during his side's 16-0 defeat by Wigan in the Tetley's Challenge Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.
Heremaia, who came on as a substitute, has been charged by the Rugby Football League's match review panel with a grade B dangerous lift on Wigan captain Sean O'Loughlin on 60 minutes.
Heremaia, who has missed only one match this season, has until 11am on Wednesday to submit an early-guilty plea or face a disciplinary hearing.
Hull are facing a rematch with the Warriors in Super League's penultimate round of matches at the DW Stadium this Friday.
