Ablett hit by RFL charge

Leeds Rhinos forward Carl Ablett has been charged by the Rugby Football League for allegedly kicking Warrington winger Joel Monaghan during the game at The Halliwell Jones Stadium on May 30.

An allegation that Zak Hardaker of Leeds Rhinos made homophobic comments during the same game has also been referred to the RFL Compliance Department, which has begun a formal investigation.

Hull KR player Michael Weyman has also been charged with using foul and abusive language towards a match official during the 54-12 defeat at Castleford on June 1.

The RFL have charged Wakefield's Richard Moore with a Grade B striking offence in the match against Bradford on June 1, and during the same match Bradford player Elliot Kear, who submitted an early guilty plea, has been charged with a Grade A striking offence.

The RFL Match Review Panel deemed the sending off of London Broncos player Scott Moore to be sufficient following his high tackle on Hull FC player Callum Lancaster .

Ablett and Moore have until 11.00am on Tuesday to submitt Early Guilty Pleas but Weyman does not have the option of submitting an EGP and will appear before an independent disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday evening.

The RFL Match Review Panel also issued cautions to Matt Diskin (Bradford Bulls) and Eloi Pelissier (Catalan Dragons).
