The Argentine back was a 69th-minute replacement for midfielder Paul Costes but his part in finishing out the 38-26 semi-final victory over Harlequins has now been called into question for a tackle on Luke Northmore, who was quickly substituted following the collision.

A statement read: “EPCR has received a citing complaint against the Stade Toulousain replacement, Santiago Chocobares (No22), arising from his club’s Investec Champions Cup semi-final match against Harlequins at Le Stadium on Sunday.
