Salford have been charged with a breach of regulations after they fielded 14 players during their 34-30 win over Castleford in coach Brian Noble's first Super League match.

The Castleford chief executive, Steve Gill, has claimed that three plays took place while the Reds had an extra man after making a substitution four minutes from the end of last Saturday's match.

Meanwhile, Noble has signed the 23-year-old rugby union centre Jordan Davies from Sale as his first recruit. Davies played amateur rugby league for local club Eccles when a teenager.

Noble has also completed the permanent signing of prop Darrell Griffin from Leeds. The 31-year-old has signed for two years after spending three months on loan.
