Super League: Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Mickey Paea face RFL charge
Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Mickey Paea face an RFL disciplinary panel on Tuesday

The Saints prop clashed with ex-Saints man Leon Pryce in Friday evening's game and, if found guilty at a disciplinary meeting on Tuesday, will be sidelined for two or three matches.
The RFL's disciplinary panel describe the challenge as: "Grip around the head/neck area is maintained and as attacking player is taken to the ground pressure is applied for a significant period of time. Defenders have a responsibility to avoid contact of this nature.
"Not deliberate but player uses a dangerous technique to keep the attacking player at a disadvantage."
Also facing a possible ban is Hull FC's Mickey Paea.
The prop has been handed a Grade B charge for allegedly making dangerous contact with Richard Owen of Castleford Tigers.
Paea's suspension, if guilty, would be either one or two games.
And a ban would make Hull's front row crisis worse as Liam Watts is the only other fit prop available for selection against Widnes this weekend.
