Ospreys pair cited

Two Ospreys' players have been cited for foul play following the RaboDirect PRO12 match against Connacht at the Sportsground in Galway on Friday night.

Joe Bearman and Ross Jones have been cited for an alleged dangerous tackle contrary to Law 10.4(j), in the 27th minute.

Both players will be required to attend a hearing before an three man independent RaboDirect Pro12 disciplinary committee, the date and venue of which will be confirmed separately.

Law 10.4(j) states: “Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the groundwhilst that player’s feet are still off the ground such that the player’s head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play."

There will be no further comment on this matter from Ospreys Rugby.
