Ardie Savea scoring for Hurricanes

Cited: Ardie Savea

Hurricanes openside flanker Ardie Savea has been cited following an incident in Saturday's pre-season clash with the Chiefs in Mangatainoka.

Savea was cited for an alleged dangerous tackle in the 78th minute of a match won by the Chiefs.

Citing Commissioner Steve Hinds cited Savea under law 10.4(j) for an alleged lifting tackle on Chiefs replacement half-back Augustine Pulu.

Savea will face a judicial hearing, to be conducted by video-conference, with Judicial Officer Nigel Hampton QC on Tuesday, February 19.

If the citing is upheld and a sanction is imposed, any ban will carry over into Super Rugby, which starts on Saturday for the Hurricanes.
