ZAK Hardaker will not be charged with the challenge that led to Chris Hill's eye injury during Saturday's semi-final loss to Leeds Rhinos.

Contact was made as Chris Hill attempted to cross the try line in the 56th minute.

The Rugby Football League match review panel's verdict is that the Leeds Rhinos full back made incidental, non-deliberate contact with the Warrington prop's face.

During the challenge, Hill dropped the ball and a try opportunity was missed.

For his efforts, he was left with a bruised 'egg' under his right eye.
