England star Flood cited

2013-01-05 19:41

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.

A ban would leave Flood in danger of missing Leicester's crucial European Cup pool games against the Ospreys and Toulouse later this month.

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

    Good - this was the same rubbish that shoved Percy Montgomery into the Tv camera in the 2007 world cup final.

    Saw the tackle, if he is cited, it will surely be a sad day for rugby. I think a penalty was was good enough as it verged on tip tackle. The tip part of it was literally 40cm of the ground.
