MUNSTER WING GERHARD van den Heever has been citied for an alleged dangerous tackle during their recent Guinness Pro12 win over Edinburgh.

Van den Heever was given a yellow card in the 14th minute of Saturday’s game in Murrayfield which Munster went on to win 16-14.

The South African born player will face a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, Edinburgh lock Fraser McKenzie has lodged an appeal against the length of his two-week suspension for dangerously charging an opponent in their Pro 12 defeat to Connacht in October.

His hearing will also be held tomorrow.
