Leicester skipper Tom Youngs has been cited by independent match commissioner Andy Blyth following last Saturday’s Gallagher Premiership win over Wasps.


The Tigers hooker will appear before an independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday after allegedly punching or striking Wasps’ Will Rowlands in the 53rd minute of the league encounter at Welford Road. 

The independent panel will comprise  Jeremy Summers (chair), with Nick Garling and one other panel member to be confirmed.

Leicester full-back Telusa Veainu had been the star of a dour 18-9 victory.

With the game in the balance, the Tongan capitalised on poor handling from the visitors to run 90 metres and complete a miserable week for Wasps, during which Dai Young stood down after nine years at the helm as director of rugby.
