Fiji’s Waqaniburotu cited for tip tackle

Fiji flanker Dominiko Waqaniburotu has been cited for making a dangerous tip tackle during the World Cup Pool D match against South Africa on Saturday.

The Fijian team have been informed and the case will be heard by the Independent Judicial Officer Christopher Quinlan of England, a statement said.

The hearing will take place in Auckland with the time and date to be confirmed.

Waqaniburotu is the third player to be cited in the competition which got underway on September 9.

English lock Courtney Lawes was banned for two games for kneeing Argentina’s hooker Mario Ledesma in the head, while US skipper Todd Clever was found guilty of making a dangerous tackle against Russia but no sanction was taken.
