Tuson facing disciplinary hearing
Wigan Warriors forward Chris Tuson has been summoned to appear before the Rugby Football League’s disciplinary committee charged with making a dangerous tackle in the St Helens-Wigan derby.
Tuson is facing a grade B offence of making dangerous contact on Saints’ England international Jon Wilkin during the champions’ 32-10 Engage Super League victory at the Stobart Stadium last Friday.
He was cited by the RFL’s match review panel, which issued formal cautions to Wilkin for making dangerous contact on his England team-mate Joel Tomkins and Wigan prop Andy Coley for a dangerous tackle on Saints full-back Paul Wellens during the same match.
Catalan Dragons second rower Sebastien Raguin has also been charged with a dangerous tackle on Huddersfield Giants winger Jermaine McGillvary during his side’s 28-20 defeat at the Shay on Saturday.
