Cape Town - All Black lock, Scott Barrett is set to face a Sanzaar foul play review committee hearing over his shoulder charge in the Rugby Championship encounter against Australia in Perth. 

The incident, which happened just before half-time, saw Barrett sent off after his clash with Wallabies captain, Michael Hooper.

Barrett, only the fourth ever All Black to be red carded, will appear before the committee on Sunday after he was ruled to have broken Law 9.13 (dangerous tackles) and Law 9.17 (tackling without grabbing an opponent) by French referee, Jerome Garces. 

The Wallabies went on to win the encounter 47-26, making their extra man count to good effect in the second half.
