Guinness PRO12 Editor

9 Jan 2012

Two Ospreys’ players have been cited for foul play following the match versus the Newport Gwent Dragons on Friday 6 January.

George Stowers, the replacement back row forward, was cited for an alleged dangerous tackle in the 67th minute, and Jonathan Thomas, the replacement back row forward, was also cited for a dangerous tackle in the 79th minute of the match. Both players will be required to attend a hearing before an three man independent RaboDirect Pro12 disciplinary committee, date and venue of which will be confirmed separately.

The committee will also hear the case of the Benetton Treviso back row replacement player, Simon Picone, who received a red card for illegally charging an opponent in the 80th minute of the Munster v Benetton Treviso match on Saturday 7 January 2012.
