Audebert & Flannery Cited

Following on from the Round 5 Heineken Cup Pool 5 match at Parc des Sports Marcel-Michelin on Sunday, the Two players, Clermont’s Alexandre Audebert and Munster’s Jerry Flannery must appear before an independent Disciplinary Committee as a result of two citings arising during the course of the game.

Flannery has been cited for an alleged stamping/trampling on ASM Clermont Auvergne flanker Julien Bonnaire while Audebert has been cited for two incidents in the game.

The first alleges he stamped/trampled on Ronan O’Gara leaving the Munster out-half with a severed ear that required 20 stitches and the second citing is for an alleged punch on replacement Alan Quinlan in the second half.

London Wasps hooker Raphael Ibanez,  is also due to appear before an independent Disciplinary Committee as a result of a citing arising from the match against Llanelli Scarlets at Adams Park on Sunday.

The citing lodged by the Citing Commissioner for the match, Peter Brown (Scotland), was for alleged stamping / trampling on Llanelli Scarlets flanker Simon Easterby.

It is not known when the hearings will take place, the ERC statement  stating that ‘the independent Disciplinary Committee will be appointed as soon as practicable.’
