Leinster second row Hayden Triggs cited for allegedly making contact with the eye of opponent

Leinster lock Hayden Triggs has been cited for allegedly making contact with the eye of Montpellier scrum-half Nic White during last Friday's Champions Cup clash.

Leinster put the French side to the sword as they booked their place in the knockout stages with a comfortable win, but they face the prospect of losing Triggs for a period after the EPCR received a complaint about the first half incident.

According to a statement, Triggs is 'alleged to have made contact with the eye area of the Montpellier scrum-half, Nic White (No 9), in the 44th minute of the match in contravention of Law 10.4 (m).'

The low end for suspensions for that offence is 12 weeks, with the mid-range being 18 weeks and the top end between 24 and 208 weeks.

If found guilty, Triggs would be in danger of missing Leinster's Champions Cup quarter-final.
