Rugby League World Cup 2013: Ben Westwood doubt for England
Last updated on .From the section Rugby League
Warrington forward Ben Westwood could miss England's opening World Cup game against Australia after being charged by the RFL with a punching offence.
Westwood appeared to catch Wigan's Blake Green in the Super League Grand Final but it was missed by the referee.
The Grade B charge could result in a two-game ban, meaning he would miss the Italy friendly on 19 October and the opener against Australia on 26 October.
The 32-year-old will have his hearing on 8 October.
