Glasgow Warriors hooker George Turner has been cited by the European Professional Cup Rugby (EPCR) following his yellow-card incident in the recently concluded Champions Cup encounter against Montpellier at Scotstoun Stadium.

The 25-year-old was sin-binned for an off-the-ball shoulder charge to the back of Louis Picamoles in the 27th minute of the game and it proved costly for the Scottish regional side as they went on to lose the game with a 22-29 margin that puts them on the brink of elimination.

Turner will now appear before a three-man disciplinary panel in London on Wednesday and has been charged with a breach of Law 10.4 (f), which concerns "playing an opponent without the ball".

After the defeat, Glasgow Warriors head coach Rennie had said: "The first (sin-binning) was dumb. At 17-5 we had all the momentum, it was our lineout, our ball and 20 metres out, and that was telling, which is disappointing."
