CASTLEFORD TIGERS winger Justin Carney will learn today if he faces further action over an alleged dangerous tackle in yesterday’s 64-18 thrashing of London Broncos.

Carney, who was suspended for Tigers’ Tetley’s Challenge Cup sixth round win over Wigan Warriors, could miss Sunday’s semi-final clash with Widnes Vikings if the Rugby Football League match review panel decide to charge him over the second-half incident at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Leigh-based referee Joe Cobb awarded a penalty only, and Powell said: “Obviously he lifted him up a bit, but I don’t think there was anything dangerous in it.

“I was a fair way away, with some bodies in the way, so I will have to have a look at it.”

Powell – whose side came through injury-free – was relieved to be able to finally turn his thoughts to the semi-final.

He said: “We have got it in front of us, it is one game and we need to get it right. We need to be composed and calm and get our preparation right.”

Meanwhile, Broncos coach Joe Grima confirmed London hooker Scott Moore has signed for Cas next year, along with Matt Cook and Denny Solomona.

He said: “It will be fantastic for them. Daryl is a very good coach and he is going to be very good for those three, as they will be for the club.

“The way the Cas fans clapped us off was outstanding.

“The fans are outstanding and I can understand why it’s hard to get a couple of points up here.”
