Northampton's George Pisi cited over Bowe 'tip tackle'

If punished further, the Saints centre could potentially miss next month’s Heineken Cup fixtures against Leinster.

SAMOA CENTRE GEORGE Pisi will face a citing commission tomorrow after being yellow carded for an alleged tip tackle on Tommy Bowe during Ireland’s 40 – 9 win on Saturday.

Referee Steve Walsh issued the yellow card in the 39th minute after a prolonged review of the incident with the TMO.

Many at the time felt even a yellow card was stern punishment, but if tomorrow’s hearing deems the seriousness of the incident to be in the mid-range under Law 10.4(j); then any ban could see the Northampton centre miss out on the Heineken Cup double header against Leinster in four weeks.

Japan’s Ryu Koliniasi Holani will also face the disciplinary hearing after the number eight was  also yellow carded for a dangerous tackle.
