Rautenbach cited for alleged stamp

London Irish prop Faan Rautenbach has been cited for allegedly stamping on the head and shoulder of Munster's Ireland international flanker David Wallace.

Rautenbach was yellow-carded following the incident during a Heineken Cup clash between the teams in Limerick last Saturday.

But citing commissioner Francois Guers has now made a complaint against Rautenbach, with the case to be heard on Thursday.

The 34-year-old could face a ban of anything between a fortnight and maximum of 52 weeks.

Toulouse centre Florian Fritz will appear before the same disciplinary panel on Thursday after being sent off in Sunday's 21-16 defeat by Wasps.

Fritz was shown a red card for his spear tackle on Tom Varndell and later became the subject of a misconduct complaint.

The France international is alleged to have made an offensive hand gesture in the direction of spectators as he was walked from the pitch.
