Cited: Owen Williams

Owen Williams and Silesi Ma'afu have been cited following Friday's Premiership semi-final between Northampton and Leicester.

Tigers fly-half Williams has been charged with "acts contrary to good sportsmanship/making contact with the eye(s) or eye area of Luther Burrell" while Saints prop Ma'Afu has been charged with striking Tom Youngs after being sent off during his side's 21-20 victory.

Both will answer the charges in front of an Rugby Football Union Disciplinary panel on Tuesday.

Uncapped 22-year-old Williams has been included in the Wales 'Possibles' squad for their June tour to South Africa but a ban would rule him out as the IRB recommends a minimum 12-week ban for anyone found guilty of making illegal contact with the eyes.
