London - England lock Joe Launchbury has been cited for kicking Asaeli Tikoirotuma during Saturday's 58-15 victory over Fiji, disciplinary chiefs said on Sunday.

The incident is alleged to have occurred in the second minute of the game at Twickenham, when Launchbury, 25, appeared to take aim at the ball, only to hit the Fiji centre.

Wasps forward Launchbury, who will go before a disciplinary hearing on Monday, faces a sanction of between four and 12 weeks if he is found guilty.
