Masi cited for high tackle on Kearney

Andrea Masi has been cited for the dangerous tackle that saw him sin-binned inside the opening minute of Italy's RBS 6 Nations defeat to Ireland.

The Azzurri full-back was yellow carded for a neck-high challenge on opposite number Rob Kearney in Sunday's 38-9 loss in Rome.

Masi is scheduled to have his case heard by an independent Six Nations three-man disciplinary committee in London tomorrow.

Should he be found guilty, he could be banned for Italy's crunch clash with Scotland a week on Saturday.
