Last Updated: 16/04/18 7:13pm
Huddersfield half-back Danny Brough is facing the possibility of a ban of three to five matches following his dismissal for verbally abusing a touchjudge.
Brough was sent off by referee James Child five minutes from the end of the Giants' 30-12 Betfred Super League defeat by Salford on Sunday.
He has been charged by the Rugby Football League's match review panel with a grade D offence and will appear before a disciplinary tribunal on Tuesday.
St Helens centre Mark Percival, who was sin-binned for disputing the decision of a touchjudge during his side's 24-20 defeat by Wakefield the same day, has been handed a one-match penalty notice for a grade A offence.
Elsewhere, Huddersfield stand-off Lee Gaskell and Salford prop Lee Mossop were both told they would face no further action over grade A offences arising from the game at the John Smith's Stadium.
Meanwhile, Hull forwards Danny Washbrook and Masi Matongo were given cautions for dangerous tackles in their win at Widnes.
