Three players from the Co-operative Championships have been charged with offences committed during last weekend’s fixtures.

London Skolars player Dylan Skee has been charged with committing the Grade B offence of making dangerous contact with an unacceptable risk of injury in the 56th minute of his side’s game against Workington Town on Sunday April 1.

Gary Middlehurst of Rochdale Hornets has been charged with the Grade E offence of kicking to the head and punching in the 57th minute of their game against North Wales Crusaders also on Sunday April 1.

North Wales’s Anthony Morrison has also been charged with a Grade B punching offence in the same minute of the game.

All three players were charged after the incidents were viewed by the RFL Match Review Panel, who also issued a formal caution to Kurt Haggerty of North Wales Crusaders for striking with the knee in the 46th minute against Rochdale on Sunday April 1. Rochdale duo Steve McDermott and Johnny Leather were also issued formal cautions for running in and throwing punches in the same fixture.
