London - England flyhalf Toby Flood has been cited for an alleged tip tackle during Leicester's 19-14 win at Worcester.

Flood will face an Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing on Tuesday following the dangerous tackle on Worcester's Andy Goode in Friday's Premiership match.

Although Flood escaped any action for the challenge during the game, he could still be facing a suspension.

Meanwhile, Leicester's Matt Smith received a Level One citing for use of an elbow on Alex Grove in Friday's fixture.
