Leicester Tigers centre Kyle Eastmond and Worcester Warriors full-back Chris Pennell will face disciplinary hearing on Tuesday in Coventry after they were cited following the ninth round of the Gallagher Premiership.

Eastmond was red-carded during the 25th minute in the game against Bristol for a high tackle on Ian Madigan and the decision proved costly for Leicester Tigers as they succumbed to a 41-10 defeat at Ashton Gate.

Meanwhile, Pennell was sin-binned during the 57th minute in the encounter against Gloucester Rugby at Kingsholm in the game that saw Worcester Warriors lose 36-16.

Gloucester are currently positioned third in the Gallagher Premiership table while Worcester Warriors are at ninth position and the two teams will take on Newcastle Falcons and Northampton Saints respectively in the 10th round of the competition.

Widely regarded as the most competitive rugby union league in the world...it can only be the Gallagher Premiership.

12 teams compete in the league over a season, playing every team both home and away, before four move into the playoffs and one is relegated.

The division is becoming more and more exciting as each year passes by so who will be lifting silverware at Twickenham in May?
