Hull Football Club captain Gareth Ellis is in danger of missing his club's Challenge Cup quarter-final against Catalan Dragons after being charged with striking.

Huddersfield Giants coach Paul Anderson was angered by the England forward's challenge on scrum-half Luke Robinson during Hull's 22-16 Super League defeat at the KC Stadium yesterday.

Ellis was charged by the Rugby Football League's match-review panel of a grade B offence, which carries a suspension of one to two matches.

The Black and Whites captain has the option of accepting a one-game ban by submitting an early-guilty plea and missing the cup tie in Perpignan on Saturday or fighting the charge at a disciplinary hearing, which would carry the risk of a two-match ban if found guilty.

Ellis was also given a caution for dangerous contact in an unrelated incident from the same match.
