Nadolo cited after Canberra win

Crusaders wing Nemani Nadolo has been cited for alleged foul play during his team's Super Rugby game against the Brumbies on Sunday.

Nadolo is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (j) Lifting Tackle, when he made contact with Brumbies scrum-half Tomás Cubelli in Canberra.

Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.

The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAAR Duty Judicial Officer Chris Morris.

All SANZAAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO.
