The interrupted career of Danny Williams could be interrupted again following the London forward's latest controversy. Williams has been told to appear before a disciplinary hearing in Leeds today over a high tackle on Chris Charles for which he was placed on report during the Broncos' Challenge Cup victory at Salford on Sunday.

Williams has played six times since serving the remainder of an 18-match ban imposed for a notorious incident in which he struck an opponent while playing for Melbourne last year.

St Helens' suspended coach, Ian Millward, is still waiting to hear the club's decision on his future. The Saints' chairman, Eamonn McManus, described the atmosphere at Knowsley Road on Friday night, when thousands of fans demonstrated in Millward's favour, as "scandalous".

"At one stage, I was genuinely frightened for our lives," said McManus, who suspended Millward over three allegations of swearing. Two unrelated Andersons - the former Australian coach, Chris, and the current New Zealand incumbent, Daniel - have admitted an interest in the job, should it become vacant.

Wigan have again denied reports that the club faces a change of ownership after Wigan Athletic's promotion to the Premiership. The current owner, Dave Whelan, has received two letters from potential buyers.

Widnes are interested in the French scrum-half, Maxime Greseque, who played for Featherstone last year.

The Vikings' coach, Frank Endacott, watched Greseque play for Pia at Leeds on Friday night, but he is under contract for the rest of this season.

Toulouse are to become the first French club to feature in a televised Challenge Cup game when their quarter-final against Widnes forms the first half of a BBC double-header, followed by St Helens versus Wigan, on 26 June.
