Ulster hooker Rob Herring will appear before an independent PRO12 Rugby Disciplinary Panel in Cardiff tomorrow after being cited for an alleged stamp in Ulster's defeat to Glasgow last weekend.

He was cited by the independent citing commissioner for an alleged breach of Law 10.4 (b) which states: A player must not stamp or trample on an opponent.

Herring was not yellow carded during the Guinness Pro12 encounter, but an independent Citing Commissioner has found grounds to cite the hooker.

Under World Rugby’s sanctions for foul play, law 10.4(b) carries the following sanction entry points – low end: two weeks; mid-range: five weeks, and top end: nine to 52 weeks.

He would miss Friday evening's semi-final against Glasgow in Scotstoun if found guilty. Although he started last weekend's game, Rory Best would be expected to regain his place at hooker.
