Lions flanker cited, Sonny Bill Williams banned

Lions flanker Sean O’Brien has been cited for an incident of dangerous play during the second-Test victory over the All Blacks.

O’Brien is alleged to have struck New Zealand wing Waisake Noholo during the second half in Wellington on Saturday.

He faces a hearing at 09:00 BST on Sunday and, if found guilty, would miss next weekend’s third Test in Auckland.

UPDATE – the citing against O’Brien was dismissed and he’s free to play in the third test.

Meanwhile, All Black Sonny Bill Williams has been banned for four weeks for his shoulder charge into Anthony Watson’s face.
