Hooper cited

Brumbies flank Michael Hooper has been cited for foul play during a match against the Hurricanes.

Hooper lifted Hurricanes No 8 Victor Vito in a tackle and brought him to the ground while his legs were still in the air.

Referee Mark Lawrence penalised Hooper for the incident, and upon further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.

The citing is to be considered in the first instance by Sanzar duty judicial officer Mike Heron.
