George Smith of Wasps will appear before an RFU Disciplinary panel charged with striking an opponent contrary to Law 10.4(a).

The Wasps flanker will appear before a three-person RFU Discipline panel chaired by Sir James Dingemans at the Bloomsbury Holiday Inn on Wednesday, March 9.

Smith on Monday was named Premiership Player of the Month for February.
