Clever: Facing the long arm of the law

United States skipper Todd Clever has been cited for making a dangerous tackle in his side's game against Russia.

The back rower will face a disciplinary committee with regards to a late tackle committed during Thursday's 13-6 win over the Russians.

Clever was penalised during the game for tackling Victor Gresev after the ball had been passed and could now face further sanctions for his actions.

The hearing will take place in Auckland at an unconfirmed date.
