Crookes charged after sending off

Hull FC winger Jason Crookes' red card in Saturday's derby loss to Hull KR has earned him a Rugby Football League charge.


Crookes was sent off for a head-high shot on Liam Salter in the 49th minute of his side's 38-24 loss to Rovers at the Etihad Stadium.


He has been served with a Grade B charge for a careless tackle and, as he has already submitted an early guilty plea this season, now faces a one-or two-match ban if found guilty.


Crookes is the only player to be charged after the Magic Weekend in Manchester.


Team-mate Kirk Yeaman has been warned for a dangerous throw, while Salford Red Devils' Gareth Hock has also been ticked off for raising the knee in the tackle. Wigan Warriors' Dom Crosby received the RFL's third warning, also for a dangerous throw.
