Grix facing disciplinary hearing

Huddersfield's Scott Grix has been ordered to appear before an RFL disciplinary tribunal after being accused of striking an opponent.

Grix has been charged by the RFL's match-review panel with a grade A offence during the Giants' 30-6 Super League defeat by Hull last Thursday.

The 29-year-old, who is alleged to have struck Hull captain Gareth Ellis, does not have the option of submitting an early-guilty plea.
