Wakefield Trinity Wildcats prop Justin Poore has been charged with a Grade B punching offence for his sending-off in Sunday’s defeat at Wigan Warriors.

The Australian saw red ten minutes into the game at the DW Stadium for punching Wigan’s Liam Farrell.

He will now face the Rugby Football League’s disciplinary panel on Tuesday night and the offence carries a ban of between 1-2 matches if found guilty.

Poore is unable to use an early guilty plea after using one following his dismissal in the trial game against Leeds Rhinos on Boxing Day.
