London Irish fullback Delon Armitage has been cited for two separate incidents in his side's Aviva Premiership defeat by Bath at the Madjeski Stadium last weekend.
The England international has been charged with making a dangerous tackle on Tom Biggs, for which he was yellow carded 32 minutes into the game in Reading, and also striking Dave Attwood with his knee.
Elsewhere, Darren Dawidiuk, Nick Wood and Owen Farrell have all been cited for dangerous tackles during Gloucester's clash with Saracens at Kingsholm.
Gloucester duo Dawidiuk and Wood are in hot water over their respective challenges on Brad Barritt and Farrell, who himself has been called to task for his tackle Henry Trinder.
Meanwhile, Sale Sharks back-row Andy Powell and Worcester Warriors wing Miles Benjamin have also been cited for dangerous tackles, on Leicester's Thomas Waldrom and Wasps fly-half Nicky Robinson, respectively.
All of the cases will be heard on Tuesday of next week, except for Benjamin's, which will go ahead the evening before.
