Kyle Sinckler has been cited for biting during Saturday’s second Test defeat to South Africa, World Rugby has announced.
Warren Gatland’s men take on South Africa in the series decider in Cape Town on Saturday.
We’ve found a clip of when the incident in question occurred, which you can watch above with Sinckler trapped in the ruck.
A statement from World Rugby reads: “British and Irish Lions player Kyle Sinckler will attend an independent disciplinary hearing after he was cited by Scott Nowland (Australia) for an act of foul play contrary to Law 9.12 (biting) during the 64th minute of the second test against South Africa in Cape Town on 31 July, 2021.
“Sinckler will attend a hearing via video conference before an independent Judicial Committee chaired by Adam Casselden SC (Australia), joined by former international players David Croft and John Langford (both Australia) on 3 August.”
The likes of Duhan van de Merwe, Cheslin Kolbe, Maro Itoje, Faf de Klerk, Mako Vunipola and Stuart Hogg all escaped sanctions despite controversial incidents.
