Argentina replacement lock Mariano Galarza has been cited for alleged foul play against New Zealand at Wembley on Sunday.

The Pumas' second-row has been cited by Citing Commissioner Murray Whyte (Ireland) for an alleged act of foul play contrary to Law 10.4(m) 'Acts contrary to good sportsmanship' during New Zealand's 26-16 win in London. 

The case will be heard by Independent Judicial Officer Christopher Quinlan QC (England) in London. 

Galarza, at his second World Cup, came on in the 22nd minute of the match at Wembley after fellow lock Guido Petti was injured scoring Argentina's try.
