Cheetahs prop Nche cited for wild shoulder hit on Fergus McFadden

The loosehead was given a yellow card for the offence by Nigel Owens.

CHEETAHS PROP OX Nche has been called before a disciplinary committee for his powerful shoulder-barge on Fergus McFadden during the loss to Leinster last Friday.

Nche was sin-binned by Nigel Owens for the 10th minute hit, though the Welsh referee later added that the player had been lucky to see ‘just a yellow card’.


The loosehead has been cited under both Law 9.13 (late or dangerous tackling) and Law 9.25 (charging a kicker) and will tomorrow face, by video conference, a committee composed of Scottish trio Kathrine Mackie, Roddy MacLeod and Jennifer Rae.
