Josh Matavesi cited for alleged dangerous tackle against Scarlets

Centre Josh Matavesi has been cited over an alleged dangerous tackle during the Ospreys' 27-26 Pro12 win at the Scarlets on Boxing Day.

The 25-year-old Fiji playmaker's case will be heard on Wednesday, accused of "lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground" in a challenge on Gareth Owen.

Matavesi could face a minimum four-week ban if found guilty, jeopardising his participation for Pro12 clashes against the Dragons, Leinster and European action against Clermont.
