Tony Clubb could miss Sunday’s game after being accused of “striking with the shoulder”.

The in-form prop was cited by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel for an early tackle which led to Warrington’s Tom Lineham leaving the action.

The Grade B offence carries a punishment tariff of one to two games.

Clubb will get the minimum suspension if he takes an early guilty plea, ruling him out of Sunday’s Challenge Cup match at Dewsbury.

He has the option of contesting the charge but if he loses, he could also be forced to sit out the following Friday’s Super League clash with Hull FC.

Huddersfield coach Paul Anderson has been fined £500 for claiming referee Joe Cobb “succumbed to pressure” in their 26-19 loss at Wigan.

He said in a post-match press conference: “I am going to cop a fine and I don’t give a s***.”

Meanwhile Anthony Gelling has made the bold claim that Wigan will “100 per cent” reach this year’s Grand Final.

Warriors have reached the last three Super League title deciders, losing the past two.

And Kiwi Gelling is convinced the campaign will finish with another date at Old Trafford.

“We’ll win some and we’ll lose some, but we will be at Old Trafford at the end of the year, 100 per cent,” Gelling told League Express. “We’ll get our chance again this year.”
