Northampton flanker Tom Wood has been cited for his alleged dangerous clear-out on Josh van der Flier during Leinster's Heineken Champions Cup win last Saturday.
Although French referee Pierre Brousset did not deem the incident to merit a red card, the citing commissioner took a different view of the matter.
Wood hammered into the breakdown and as he attempted to clear-out the ruck, the former England international appeared to make contact with Van der Flier's head.
The incident drew plenty of outrage, particularly in light of rugby's recent controversy surrounding concussion.
Wood will face a disciplinary hearing tomorrow, which will determine whether or not he faces retrospective punishment for the alleged offence.
