Citings for Ford and Gray

Date published: October 12 2015

Scotland hooker Ross Ford and second-row Jonny Gray will face a nervous wait to see if they can take on Australia after both players were cited.

The duo have been cited by independent Citing Commissioner Scott Nowland (Australia) for an alleged act of foul play contrary to Laws 10.4(e) and 10.4(j) during the Rugby World Cup 2015 Pool B match between Samoa and Scotland at St James' Park, Newcastle, on Saturday, 10 October.

Law 10.4(e) deals with dangerous tackles and Law 10.4(j) deals with lifting tackles.

The hearing will take place at 11:00 on Tuesday, 13 October, at the offices of RWC 2015 official law firm Clifford Chance in London. The case will be heard by independent Judicial Officer Christopher Quinlan QC (England).
