CATALAN DRAGONS could be without two players due to suspension in Saturday’s home game against Wakefield Wildcats.

Vincent Duport is accused of making Grade D dangerous contact with Wigan Warriors’ Josh Charnley in the 42nd minute of last Saturday’s stormy clash in Perpignan. Team-mate Gregory Mounis has been charged with a Grade C dangerous throw on Wigan’s John Bateman, also in the 42nd minute.

Widnes Vikings’ Phil Joseph (Grade B dangerous contact on Taulima Tautai in the 43rd minute) and Stefan Marsh (Grade A dangerous contact on Reece Lyne in the 73rd minute) were charged following last week’s defeat at Wakefield.

The RFL match review panel also issued a formal caution to Widnes’ Hep Cahill for raising a knee during a tackle.

Salford Red Devils’ Gareth Hock faces a Grade E charge of making deliberate physical contact with a match official in the 38th minute of Saturday’s win over Hull.

London Broncos’ Olsi Krasniqi (Grade A) and Atelea Vea (Grade B) and Warrington Wolves’ Chris Bridge (Grade A) have been charged with striking in the 21st minute of Sunday’s match at HJ Stadium. Joseph, Marsh, Bridge, Krasniqi and Vea have until 11am today to submit early guilty pleas. Hock, Duport and Mounis do not have that option and will face the disciplinary committee tonight.
