AHEAD of his return to The Halliwell Jones Stadium with Hull KR on Thursday, Peta Hiku has been hit with a Match Review Panel charge.

However, the New Zealander will still be free to face Warrington Wolves, with whom he spent a short but fruitful spell in 2017, in Round 11.

Hiku has been hit with a Grade A charge of dangerous contact stemming from Rovers’ win over St Helens on Saturday.

The second-half incident, in which the panel said the centre “used any part of his body forcefully to twist, bend or otherwise apply pressure to the limb or limbs of an opposing player in a way that involves an unacceptable risk of injury to that player,” has been deemed at the higher end of the charge but he has been hit with a £250 fine as opposed to a ban.

Meanwhile, Hull FC half-back Jake Trueman has been charged with Grade B dangerous contact for an incident during the second half of their defeat to The Wire on Friday night.

However, he too faces just a £250 fine and will not serve a ban.

Five charges were handed out at this week’s panel sitting, but no suspensions have been issued.
