Boks star cited for gouging

South Africa lock Eben Etzebeth has been cited for making contact with the "eye or eye area" of Scotland fly-half Greig Laidlaw.

The alleged incident - effectively gouging - happened in the second half of the Springboks' 21-10 victory over the Scots at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Etzebeth, 21, will appear before an International Rugby Board disciplinary hearing on Tuesday and if found guilty he is likely to be banned for a minimum of three months, with three years the maximum penalty.

South Africa play England at Twickenham on Saturday.
