Bradford Bulls forward Elliott Whitehead faces a season-ending ban after being charged with biting by the Rugby Football League.
The charge relates to an incident which involved Whitehead and Hull KR’s Jordan Cox during yesterday’s clash at Odsal.
Biting is classed as a Grade E offence, and Harlequins’ David Howell was recently served with a six-game suspension after being found guilty of it.
If the same fate befalls Whitehead, he would miss Bradford’s last three matches of the season.
Three players have been charged following Hull FC’s win over Catalan Dragons on Friday.
Dragons winger Damien Blanch and England hopeful Kirk Yeaman have been charged with Grade B offences following a late brawl, while Catalan hooker Ian Henderson has to answer the Grade A offence of a dangerous tackle.
Crusaders RL prop Gil Dudson has a Grade B dangerous contact accusation to defend following the win over Harlequins, while Castleford’s Stuart Jones has a Grade A offence of dangerous contact to answer.
Catalan’s Jean Phillipe Baille, Castleford Tigers' Ryan McGoldrick and Huddersfield Giants' David Faiumu have all been issued with formal cautions by the RFL following dangerous contacts.
