Ireland flanker Alan Quinlan and New Zealand prop Tony Woodcock have both been cited for incidents of alleged foul play during the Test match in Dublin.
Citing commissioner, the Rugby Football Union's Peter Larter, has reported Munster forward Quinlan for stamping, while Woodcock faces a charge of striking with his fist during New Zealand's 22-3 victory on Saturday. Both players will face International Rugby Board disciplinary hearings this week, when their cases will be heard by judicial officer Lorne Crerar.
The New Zealand squad have remained in Ireland for tomorrow's match against European champions Munster in Limerick. But Woodcock, arguably the world's leading loosehead prop, could miss the All Blacks' remaining Tests against Wales and England this month if he collects a ban.
Ireland, meanwhile, have one autumn game left - against Argentina at Croke Park next Saturday.
