Wakefield Trinity coach Chris Chester will be at the Rugby Football League headquarters on Tuesday to plead Danny Kirmond's case.
Chester is keeping his fingers crossed that Kirmond will be available for the home clash with Leigh Centurions on Thursday but may have to do without him due to a possible ban.
The second row has been charged with a Grade A high tackle on Leeds scrum half Rob Burrow in Friday's defeat and faces a possible one match ban, the maximum punishment a Grade A offence carries.
Kirmond was sin binned by referee Jack Smith in the game and Chester hopes that the committee will decide that was enough of a punishment.
“We’ll go and put a case forward,” he told the Yorkshire Post.
“It’s not late and secondary contact was to the head – first contact was made around the shoulder. Rob Burrow was ducking as he has passed. "
You see those kind of tackles every week and we’re hopeful common sense prevails on Tuesday night.”
