The offence is on the lower end of the spectrum - grade A - but carries a one match penalty, which would rule him out of Friday's match.

Wigan have until 12pm tomorrow (Tuesday) if they want to challenge the charge before the disciplinary panel.

Meanwhile, Castleford's Jesse Sene-Lefao faces a two match ban for the offence of Grade C Strikes with Knee, for the challenge on Partington which led to him being red-carded.
