Castleford Tigers full-back Jordan Tansey faces a ban after being charged with making deliberate contact with a match official by the Rugby League.

The Grade C charge relates to a 31st minute incident in last Sunday’s game against Hull FC at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle when Tansey was alleged to have made deliberate physical contact with referee Tim Roby.

If found guilty, the player could be given a two or three-match ban.

Hull FC player Micky Paea has also been charged with the Grade B offence of making dangerous contact with Castleford’s Richard Owen in the 79th minute of the same fixture.

Several other incidents were looked at from the tough tackling game, including Hull forward Gareth Ellis’s use of an elbow on Daryl Clark that resulted in a penalty and Justin Carney’s robust tackle on Ben Crooks, but none of the other incidents were deemed necessary to bring a charge.
