Hull KR's Con Mika could be banned for a reckless tackle during Monday night's game

Hull KR second rower Con Mika has been charged with a reckless high tackle during his side's 32-18 derby defeat by Hull on Monday night.

Mika was put on report by referee Richard Silverwood for the challenge which laid out Hull centre Jordan Turner and has been charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel with a grade B offence.

The former Newcastle Knights forward is not eligible for an early-guilty plea and will, therefore, face an RFL disciplinary hearing on Wednesday with the possibility of picking up a ban of one or two matches.

Ironically, Mika failed to finish the match after tearing a hamstring and is already facing a spell on the sidelines.
