England flanker Lewis Ludlow will face an independent disciplinary hearing after he was cited following the recently concluded fixture against Canada at Twickenham Stadium.

The 26-year-old captained the red rose team to 70-14 win last weekend but was yellow carded in the 30th minute for striking Canada's Jake Ilnicki with the knee.

Even though Ludlow was sin-binned during the game, the citing officer deems the action warrants a red card. As a result, he will now face a disciplinary hearing on Thursday.

Prior to the game against Canada, Eddie Jones' men also recorded a 43-29 win over the USA earlier in the month.
