Auckland - United States skipper Todd Clever on Friday became the second player to be cited at the Rugby World Cup.

World Cup organisers said that he had been cited for dangerous tackling and dangerous charging during his side's 13-6 win over Russia in a Pool C match on Thursday.

"The Team has been informed and the case will be heard by the Independent Judicial Officer His Honour Judge Jeff Blackett (England)," a statement said.

The hearing will take place in Auckland at a time and date to be confirmed.

The competition's first citing resulted in England lock Courtney Lawes being suspended for two matches.
