Ryan Bower of Worcester Warrior is due to appear before an independent disciplinary panel.
Bower was shown a red card by referee Wayne Barnes in the 68th minute of the match Worcester Warriors v Bristol Bears on Sunday 7 October 2018. This was for dangerous play in a ruck, contrary to Law 9.20. Bower made contact with the head of Will Hurrell of Bristol Bears.
He is the third player to be cited after it was confirmed earlier today that Nathan Hughes and Lewis Ludlow will also face a disciplinary panel.
The hearing will take place in Tewkesbury on Tuesday 9 October at 18.30. The panel will be chaired by Daniel White with two other panel members to be confirmed.
