Two players have been cited following the RBS 6 Nations match between Ireland and Wales in Dublin on Sunday.
Bradley Davies (Wales) and Stephen Ferris (Ireland) have been cited by the independent Six Nations Citing Commissioner for the match, Achille Reali (Italy), for foul play under IRB Law 10.4(j)*.
The players' hearings, before an independent Six Nations Disciplinary Committee, will be held on Wednesday (8 February) in London.
*Law 10.4 (j) states: "Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player's feet are still off the ground such that the player's head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play".
