Samoan pair cited for foul play during Russia win

Cardiff Blues centre Rey Lee-Lo and London Irish hooker Motu Matu’u were cited on Wednesday for acts of foul play in Samoa’s bruising 34-9 World Cup opening win over Russia.

The pair will attend hearings before an independent judicial committee at a date to be agreed with the players and their representatives.

Samoa winger Ed Fidow also received a citing commissioner warning for an act of foul play in the same match.

“This remains on his disciplinary record in the event that he accumulates any combination of three warnings or yellow cards during the tournament,” World Rugby said in a statement.
