HULL KR forward James Green will be available for Wembley, despite being accused of a shoulder charge in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup semi-final win over Warrington Wolves.

Green has been charged with a grade C offence on Warrington’s Gene Ormsby in the 50th minute of Rovers’ shock 26-18 triumph.

The grading means Green could be banned for up to three games, ruling him out of action until the Cup final showdown with Leeds Rhinos on Saturday, August 29.

There were no other charges from either of last weekend’s semi-finals.

Ormsby is set to miss all of Warrington’s Super-8s campaign, which begins away to Rhinos on Friday.

The winger suffered a broken jaw and is facing eight weeks on the sidelines.

Warrington also have a doubt over forward Ben Harrison, who suffered concussion in the semi-final.

Meanwhile, Catalans Dragons’ former Bradford Bulls hooker Ian Henderson will leave the club at the end of the season to join Sydney Roosters.

Henderson’s move back to Australia’s NRL will give him a reunion with former Dragons coach Trent Robinson and end his five-year stay in France.

The 32-year-old, who was born in England, but moved to Australia as a youngster, has made 122 appearances for Catalans and will now return to his first professional club.

Catalans are keen to sign Rhinos’ Paul Aiton as a replacement for Henderson.

Aiton, who is ever-present this year, is in his second year at Leeds after joining them from Wakefield Wildcats.
