Will Skelton of the Waratahs has been issued with a Citing Commissioner Warning for contravening Law 10.4 (k) Dangerous play in a scrum, ruck or maul, during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred when Skelton made contact with Reds #2 Saia Fainga’a in the 25th minute of the match between the Waratahs and Reds played at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on 27 February 2016.

A Citing Commissioner Warning may be issued by the SANZAAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.

Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed a Citing Commissioner Warning was appropriate.
