Former Melbourne Storm prop Jeff Lima is facing disciplinary action just one match into his Super League career.

The New Zealand international who joined the Warriors in the off-season, has been charged by the RFL's match review panel with two offences from his debut - a 16-16 draw with St Helens in Cardiff on Saturday.

Lima is charged with making dangerous tackles on both centre Sia Soliola and Jon Wilkin and will face the disciplinary committee on Tuesday. They are grade C offences which carry a suspension of up to three matches.

Two other players were also cited as a result of alleged fouls during the opening round of Super League matches at the Millennium Stadium.

Wakefield centre Aaron Murphy has been charged with making a dangerous throw in his side's 40-20 defeat by Castleford, whose prop Steve Snitch is facing a grade B charge of using undue pressure on the shoulder of the Wildcats forward Paul Johnson.

They will also appear in front of the disciplinary panel, along with Salford hooker Wayne Godwin, who was sent off for running in and punching Crusaders captain Clinton Schifcofske after the final whistle of his side's 42-12 defeat.
