THE Rugby Football League are investigating a biting allegation brought by England international Sam Tomkins against Castleford Tigers hooker Ryan Hudson.

Wigan full-back Tomkins (pictured) made the claim against Hudson during his side’s 40-16 Super League win over the Tigers at the DW Stadium last Friday.

The incident was put on report by referee George Stoke and the RFL’s match-review panel on Monday requested more information from Wigan before deciding whether to bring any charges.

When asked about the incident in the post-match press conference, Wigan coach Shaun Wane said: “I need to have a look at that before I make a comment on it. I’d be amazed and disappointed.”
