Cape Town - Blue Bulls Under-21 lock Marvin Orie has been cited for dangerous tackle which led to WP lock JD Schickerling breaking his neck.

QUIZ: Tackle Sport24's virtually impossible yet highly addictive quiz!

According to the SA Rugby Twitter page, Orie will appear before a SARU disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, starting at 16:00.

Advocate Tokkie van Zyl has been appointed as the Judicial Officer.

Schickerling, 19, who represented the Junior Boks at this year's IRB Junior World Championship, sustained the injury in the fourth minute of the clash at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria last Saturday.

Schickerling is currently in a Pretoria hospital and is likely to be operated on for a second time to insert a protective plate in his neck to support his spine.

Despite the horrific injury, Schickerling said he is determined to recover and play rugby again.
