Two Ospreys forwards have been cited for foul play following their loss to Newport Gwent Dragons last Friday.
George Stowers, who joined the Liberty Stadium side in the summer, has been cited for an alleged dangerous tackle in the 67th minute of the match. And he is joined by Jonathan Thomas in being picked up after the 29-year-old was cited for a dangerous tackle in the 79th minute of the clash.
Both players will have to attend a three man RaboDirect PRO12 disciplinary committee with the date and venue yet to be confirmed. The Ospreys face Treviso at the Liberty Stadium on Friday before travelling to Biarritz in their final clash of the Heineken Cup Pool stages in nine days time.
