The hero for Scotland only two weeks ago in their victory over Australia was shown a yellow in the first half for a deliberate knockdown in the Aviva Premiership fixture. He was then given a second yellow for a dangerous tackle on opposite winger Bryce Heem and has been charged with acts contrary to good sportsmanship law 10.4 (m).

The case will be dealt with on papers on Wednesday evening by a panel including Aidan O’Brien (chairman), Becky Essex and Tim Grey.
