The Rugby Football League has charged eight players

Six men have been cited from Salford's 16-12 win over Catalan Dragons while Grant Millington (Castleford) and Larne Patrick (Huddersfield) have been charged with punching offences which earned them a spell in the sin bin during the Giants' 48-32 win.

Both Millington and Patrick are facing grade A charges and are eligible for early-guilty pleas which would enable them to avoid any suspension.

Salford props Jacob Emmitt and Lee Jewitt will face a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, while team-mate Darrell Griffin has until 11am on Tuesday to submit an early-guilty plea to a grade C charge which carries a ban of two to three matches.

Catalan forwards Remi Casty, Ian Henderson and Gregory Mounis were also charged by the RFL's match-review panel and are able to enter early-guilty pleas.
