FEATHERSTONE Rovers winger Nathan Chappell and York City Knights centre Matt Garside have both been charged with fighting offences by the RFL following a 36th minute flare up in last Saturday's Co-operative Championship game at Bigfellas Stadium.

Both players have until 11am next Tuesday to submit an early guilty plea in relation to their grade A offences.

Chappell has scored five tries in Featherstone's last two games including a hat-trick against York.

Featherstone's Greg Worthington and York's Tom Bush were both sin-binned in Saturday's game for their involvement in the same 36th minute incident.
