Chiefs prop cited

Chiefs tighthead prop Ben Tameifuna has been cited for a dangerous tackle on Sharks No 8 Ryan Kankowski during the Super Rugby final.

The incident occurred in the 47th minute of the match, which saw Tameifuna hitting Kankowski above the line of the shoulders.

The dangerous play wasn’t penalised during the game, but upon further review, the citing commissioner decided the tackle had met the red card threshold for foul play.

The citing will be heard by Sanzar duty judicial officer Nicholas Davidson.
