Thomson, Simmons cited

All Blacks flanker Adam Thomson has been cited for stamping while Wallabies lock Rob Simmons is also in trouble for his tip-tackle on Frenchman Yannick Nyanga.

Thomson was cited for stamping or trampling on the head of Scotland flank Alasdair Strokosch in Sunday’s Test at Murrayfield. Thomson was yellow carded for the offence, but is still expected to fetch a hefty ban.

Simmons has been called to task for a dangerous tip-tackle on Nyanga in the second half of the Wallabies’ clash against France on Saturday.

Hearings for both players will take place in London on Wednesday.
