Hurricanes second-row Jeremy Thrush has been cited for a late and dangerous tackle during the Super Rugby match against the Highlanders in Invercargill on Friday.
Thrush is accused of taking out a player without the ball and dangerous charging for his challenge on Highlanders replacement hooker Jason Rutledge during the Hurricanes' 13-6 defeat to their rivals.
The lock will appear before a SANZAR judicial hearing on Tuesday at the New Zealand Rugby Union offices in Wellington.
