Salford Red Devils forward Gareth Hock faces two charges of recklessly using his knees during their Super League defeat by St Helens.

The more serious Grade C charge arises out of a 53rd-minute incident involving Tommy Makinson of Saints.

And the 31-year-old has also been charged with a Grade B offence towards Mose Masoe a few minutes later as Salford

were beaten 52-6.

Hock will appear at a disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday evening.

An independent panel will also consider charges against five other players following the second weekend of games in the new season – Catalans’s Eloi Pelissier and Olivier Elima, Castleford’s Jake Webster, Sam Powell of Wigan and Huddersfield prop forward Eorl Crabtree.
