Scott Higginbotham of the Rebels has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

Higginbotham is alleged to have contravened 10.4 (b) Stamping or trampling during the match between the Crusaders and Rebels at AMI Stadium in Christchurch on 13 February 2015.

Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.

The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nicholas Davidson QC.

All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO.
