Hines cited for dangerous tackle

Nathan Hines will face a disciplinary hearing today after being cited for a dangerous tackle against the Emerging Springboks in Cape Town.

The Perpignan and Scotland lock was singled out by Citiing Commissioner Steve Hinds (New Zealand) for an alleged dangerous tackle in the ninth minute of the second half of the 13-13 draw at Newlands. 

It means he will undergo a formal disciplinary hearing in front of Judicial Officer Alan Hudson (Canada) at lunchtime today. If he is found guilty it could bring his tour to a premature end and rule him out of contention for one or both of the final two Tests.
