Leigh’s Adam Higson is facing a ban after being charged with punching in last Friday’s game against Swinton.

The same incident also involved Swinton Lions player Zach Johnson. Both have been charged Grade B punching offences.

Johnson has until 11.00am on Tuesday April 29 to submit an Early Guilty Plea. Higson does not have the option of submitting an Early Guilty Plea and will appear before an RFL Disciplinary Tribunal on Tuesday evening.

Grade B offences typically carry a ban of between one and two games.
