London Welsh's Neil Briggs has been cited for alleged foul play.

The Rugby Football Union announced that he will face a disciplinary hearing tonight.

Hooker Briggs was reported by independent citing officer John Byett for punching or striking Harlequins back Sam Smith during last Sunday's Aviva Premiership game at the Kassam Stadium.

The case will be heard by a three-man RFU panel under the chairmanship of Jeremy Summers.
