3. The Citing Commissioner will have 24 hours from the conclusion of the match to bring a citing in writing to the RFU Head of Discipline Gerard McEvilly
4. Only the Citing Commissioner shall have the power and responsibility to cite a player whom the independent video and/or other evidence shows to have committed an act of foul play whether or not it has been detected by the match officials
5. A club participating in a match may refer any incidents in that match that they want the Citing Commissioner to consider within four hours of the conclusion of the match
6. Before bringing a citing complaint the Citing Commissioner must be satisfied that in his opinion the act of foul play merited the award of a Red Card (the ‘Red Card Test’)
7. If the Citing Commissioner assesses that a player committed an act of foul play which did not satisfy the Red Card Test but that the incident should be brought to his attention he may issue a written warning (known as a ‘Level 1 citing’). In these circumstances the RFU Head of Discipline shall communicate to the club and player by way of a letter or email, indicating that the act was detected, stating that no further action is intended on this occasion but warning the player as to his future conduct. Such a written warning will be recorded on the club register and may be taken into consideration in future disciplinary proceedings. It will remain on a player’s record for five years and be treated as though it were a yellow card for the purposes of totting up during the relevant season
8. Disciplinary hearings will in normal circumstances be scheduled for the Tuesday following the match
9. Appeal hearings will in normal circumstances be scheduled for the Thursday following the original hearing
