Leeds Rhinos forward Brad Singleton is facing a possible ban after being charged by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel.

Singleton will appear before the governing body’s disciplinary committee tomorrow accused of “grade E strikes with elbow” during last Friday’s win over Catalans Dragons.

The sentencing guideline for a Grade E offence is a ban of between four and eight matches.

The Leeds man was placed on report by referee James Child following an incident involving Catalans’ Greg Bird.

Catalans coach Laurent Frayssinous said after the game he felt Singleton should have been sent-off.

He claimed Bird, who later suffered a broken thumb which could sideline him for six to eight weeks, needed seven stitches in the back of his head.
