Catalan Dragons' Chris Walker is to face a disciplinary hearing today over a tackle that left an opponent with a broken jaw.

Hull KR's Liam Colbon is expected to be out for at least two months after a late, high tackle during the match at Perpignan on Saturday. Walker could be banned for four matches after being charged with illegal use of the forearm. Leeds' Ryan Bailey will appear at the same hearing, accused of a "chicken wing" tackle on Stuart Fielden of Wigan.

Salford's Rob Parker could be out for the season with a broken hand.
