Harlequins forward Mat Luamanu could face suspension after being charged with dangerous tackling.

Luamanu received a yellow card in the first half of his side's win over Exeter in the Anglo-Welsh Cup last weekend for a tackle on opposition fly-half Will Hooley.

The New Zealander has been cited for the challenge and will now appear in front of a three-person RFU Discipline panel on Tuesday.

Luamanu was banned for three weeks by the RFU for a tackle on Sale forward Josh Beaumont in September.
