Scotland hooker Fraser Brown could face a suspension after being cited for his dangerous tip-tackle on Elliot Daly in Saturday's Six Nations thumping by England.

The Glasgow front-rower was sin-binned for his challenge on England wing Daly in Scotland's 61-21 loss at Twickenham, but now faces a disciplinary hearing today to review the incident.

Brown could now miss Scotland's closing Six Nations clash against Italy in Edinburgh on Saturday, if handed a ban.
