Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni has been cited for his red card tackle effort against Wasps in the Gallagher Premiership over the weekend.

Rokoduguni was sent off in the opening minute of the second half for a high tackle but Bath made light of his absence until 14 minutes from the end when Tom de Glanville saw yellow for a deliberate knock-on.

The former England international will appear before a virtual independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday.

“Rokoduguni received a red card in the second half of the match between Wasps and Bath on Saturday 12 February, for dangerous tackling contrary to World Rugby Law 9.13. The case will be heard by the panel comprising Gareth Graham (chair) sitting with Mitch Read and one other member to be confirmed,” an RFU statement read.”

After the match, which Bath lost, forwards coach Neal Hatley would be drawn on Rokodugini’s card.

“The red card was a turning point but the sin-binning finished us off. I do not want to talk about Semesa’s sending off, but Tom left the referee with no choice because there were numbers outside him.

“There was a lot for us to take from the game and we have to pick ourselves up for Leicester next weekend.”
