Ospreys pair cited after Connacht defeat
OSPREYS duo Joe Bearman and Ross Jones have been cited for an alleged dangerous tackle during their side's RaboDirect Pro12 defeat to Connacht in Galway on Friday night.
The pair have been cited for an incident in the 27th minute of the 22-10 loss, contrary to law 10.4(j).
The law states: "Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player's feet are still off the ground such that the player's head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play."
The pair will attend a hearing before an independent disciplinary panel at a date to be confirmed.
