Queensland Reds flanker Angus Scott-Young will appear before a foul play review committee of SANZAAR after he was cited following the recently concluded Super Rugby game against Brumbies at Suncorp Stadium on Sunday.
The 21-year-old was cited after he struck the head of Brumbies prop James Slipper during the first half of the game which Reds went on to win 36-14.
SANZAAR citing commissioner said the act of Scott-Young was a breach of law 9.12 that deals with 'A player must not physically or verbally abuse anyone. Physical abuse includes, but is not limited to, biting, punching, contact with the eye or eye area, striking with any part of the arm (including stiff-arm tackles), shoulder, head or knee(s), stamping, trampling, tripping or kicking.'
Reds are currently positioned fourth in the Australian Conference after winning two out of the five games and will lock horns with Melbourne Rebels in the seventh round of the competition on 30th March at Suncorp Stadium.
