Cited: Martin Landajo

Argentina scrum-half Martin Landajo has been cited for alleged foul play during their Rugby Championship match against Australia on Saturday.

Landajo is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (b) stamping or trampling when he made contact with winger Adam Ashley-Cooper and hooker Saia Faingaa at a breakdown. The incident occurred in the 58th minute during the match at Estadio Gigante de Arroyito in Rosario.

The referee for the match: Wayne Barnes spoke to the player after awarding a penalty for a tackle infringement.

"Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the Red Card threshold for foul play," read a SANZAR statement.

"The Citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nigel Hampton.

"All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

"For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO."
