Munster star O'Gara cited over kicking incident



Munster fly-half Ronan O'Gara was cited on Monday for kicking an opponent during Sunday's 26-17 victory over Edinburgh in the European Cup.

The 35-year-old Irish star was reported by citing commissioner Alberto Recaldini after a second-half incident involving Edinburgh lock Sean Cox during the game at Murrayfield.

If found guilty, O'Gara could find himself banned for some or all of Ireland's Six Nations campaign, which begins away at holders Wales on February 13.

The citing carries a low end entry point of a four-week ban, with a top-end sanction of anywhere between 12 weeks and a year should he be found guilty.

Meanwhile, Racing Metro's France international centre Fabrice Estebanez has also been cited for allegedly striking Saracens wing David Strettle with his arm during his side's 37-28 defeat on Saturday.

Stade Francais lock Juan Cruz Guillemain faces a more serious charge under the same law after allegedly striking Grenoble's Fabien Alexandre with his head in their European Challenge match.

The top-end entry point for Guillemain's citing is from 16 weeks to two years.

All three cases will be heard in Dublin on Thursday, with Judge Jeff Blackett passing judgement on O'Gara, while Ireland's independent Judicial Officer Pat Barriscale will rule on both Estebanez and Guillemain.
