All Blacks hooker Hore cited

2012-11-26 07:29

London - New Zealand hooker Andrew Hore has been cited by the International Rugby Board for allegedly striking Wales lock Bradley Davies during Saturday's Test in Cardiff, the Six Nations Disciplinary Committee said on Sunday.

Hore escaped punishment from the referee during the All Blacks' 33-10 victory but now faces a disciplinary hearing.

"Andrew Hore, hooker for New Zealand, has been cited by the IRB's independent Citing Commissioner for allegedly striking an opponent during the match between Wales and New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday," the Six Nations said in a statement.

"The time and date of the hearing, before the IRB's appointed independent Judicial Officer, have yet to be fixed."

New Zealand coach Steve Hansen has added hooker Hika Elliot to his squad for Saturday's Test against England at Twickenham.

England, beaten by Australia and South Africa in the last two weeks, have called winger Tom Biggs, flyhalf Freddie Burns and prop Nick Wood into their squad for the match against the All Blacks.

Flyhalf Toby Flood suffered a toe injury in the 16-15 defeat by the South Africans on Saturday.

"Toby Flood's toe has been re-examined and there is no bone broken but we will need to see how it settles down over the next 24 hours," England coach Stuart Lancaster said in an RFU statement.

      Innocent till proven guilty Matthys. So its an alleged crime or offence Its not finish and klaar till the hearing is over. Don't you read the newspaper or watch the news. Its a common term.

    So we should see an off field yellow and nothing else because he is a loving family man and a wonderful person

      What if you're wrong? And lets face it, that's most of the time.

      simone.dechandra.7 - 2012-11-26 11:06

      lets face it most of the time you come off as an accountant lets face it this is why you never let real hores play hooker

      I'll take that as a compliment. Accountants deal with data and facts.

    Hore must get his punishment - was uncalled for! Be that as it may, the ALL BLACKS remain the rugby world champions!!!!

      simone.dechandra.7 - 2012-11-26 08:26

      and you remain not a new zealander nor a maori. hilarious

    Brilliant heading, love it. So much for the All Blacks hooker whore, eh, Hore. Certainly lived up to his name, an abject pity he wasn't spotted by the on-field officials. An outrageous act of unprovoked brutality.

      I take it you are South African, so i cant blame you for not looking at all the facts- He was provoked.

    Why allegedly striking??He did everybody could see that clearly the referee refuse to see that.

      Flemstone - 2012-11-26 10:01

      Its a legal team. He's been accused not found guilty yet. If you accused him of striking and then he's later found not guilty, he can sue. The media doesn't decide if someone is guilty, they report on the incident. Do you understand?

  • simon.berry.925 - 2012-11-26 10:47

    Still cant stop laughing every time I see this man's name and position. Playing hooker with the surname Hore, the stuff of fantasy!

  • hendrik.schutte.3152 - 2012-11-26 10:53

    Great news to read this. He must be the absolute dirtiest damn player i can recall ever having seen. If not mistaken it is the same "goof" that a while back dumped John smit head first into the ground, virtually onto the ref's foot (Bryce lawrence I think it was) and did not even concede a penalty. ref said afterwards "I did not see it". Hope all his previous "sins" are taken into consideration and perhaps a 2 year ban or so. real dirty soul!

      Wasn't that brad thorn?
