Perth - Lock Eben Etzebeth of South Africa has been cited for alleged foul play during the match at the weekend between Australia and South Africa in the Rugby Championship.
 
Etzebeth is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (a) (Punching or striking), when he made contact with Australian player Nathan Sharpe with his head. The incident occurred in the 25th minute of the match between Australia and South Africa at Patersons Stadium in Perth on Saturday.
 
Upon further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.
 
The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Mike Heron.
