The New Zealander has been picked out by citing commissioner Stefano Marrama (Italy) under Law 10.4 (m) for the alleged contact with scrum-half Nic White in the 44th minute of the 57 – 3 Champions Cup win.

A 12-week ban is the low end entry point for players found guilty of making contact with the eye area, rising to the mid-range of 18 weeks and 24 weeks to four years for the most serious offenders.


Triggs’ hearing will be chaired by England’s Antony Davies in Paris tomorrow with Julien Berenger (France) and Pamela Woodman also on the disciplinary committee.

The same trio will preside over a hearing for Montpellier’s Frans Steyn after he was red carded for a high tackle on Jonathan Sexton in the first half of the same fixture.
