Nick Malouf has been cited for a high-tackle on Christian Wade during the first half of the Leicester Tigers’ 16-15 victory over Wasps at Welford Road on Sunday.
Malouf was an early first-half substitute as he replaced the injured Jonny May who left the field just 12 minutes into the game.
The incident occurred in the 21st minute of the first-half and at the time, the Tigers man received a yellow card for the incident but according to a statement today from the RFU, the Australian 7s star will appear before an independent disciplinary panel tonight.
Here is the incident, do you think the 25-year-old deserves a ban?
