St Helens forward Morgan Knowles could be banned for up to eight games following his red card in Saturday's Betfred Super League victory over Catalans Dragons.
The 21-year-old was sent off in the early stages of the second half in Perpignan for a dangerous throw on Thibaut Margalet.
Knowles has been handed a Grade E charge by the Rugby Football League's match review panel and will appear in front of a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, where he could face a suspension of four to eight matches.
Dragons back-rower Benjamin Jullien has been given a one-match penalty notice for dangerous contact on Jonny Lomax just minutes after Knowles' sending-off.
The France international was sin-binned by referee Phil Bentham and will miss Thursday's trip to Hull KR if he accepts the Grade B charge.
Jullien has until 11am on Tuesday to challenge the penalty, which was at the lower end of the range due to his clean disciplinary record.
