Four players have been charged and one suspended following Super League round four.

Hull FC forward Franklin Pele will miss Saturday’s Betfred Challenge Cup sixth round tie at Huddersfield Giants after being handed a one-match penalty notice. The RFL’s match review panel charged Pele with grade C dangerous contact after he was sin-binned during last Saturday’s 54-4 home drubbing by Leigh Leopards.

That was the off-season signing’s second appearance for Hull. He was banned for three games after being sent-off for a high tackle during his debut in the derby defeat to Hull KR last month.

Teammate Fa’amanu Brown escaped a ban after being charged with grade B dangerous contact against Leigh. He was fined £250. Other players charged after last weekend’s top-flight games were Salford Red Devils’ Amir Bourouh (grade B dangerous contact against Wigan Warriors) and Jake Connor, of Huddersfield Giants (grade B striking). Both were fined £250, but not suspended.

There were no charges from Leeds Rhinos’ home loss to St Helens or Castleford Tigers’ defeat at Catalans Dragons.
