New Zealand have a nervous wait over a potential citing for captain Kieran Read following their thrashing of Canada.
Midway through the first half of Wednesday’s 63-0 victory, Read is seen to dive low to bring down Lucas Rumball, with images suggesting his shoulder connected with the Canada flanker’s head.
Read was penalised but while the match officials took the matter no further, the citing commissioner has 36 hours to review the incident.
(Sorry to any kiwi fans who read this but…), Kieran Read is offside, plays a man without the ball (only a push but still can’t touch him) then does a low no arm shoulder charge … will he get cited? @WorldRugby #NZLvCAN pic.twitter.com/spk7q2qioT— Jimmy (@JimmyHapstar) October 2, 2019
