Hore cited for Davies incident



New Zealand hooker Andrew Hore has been cited by the International Rugby Board (IRB) for allegedly punching Wales lock Bradley Davies during the All Blacks' 33-10 win in Cardiff on Saturday.

Hore appeared to catch Davies with a punch from behind in the game's early stages and the Cardiff Blues forward later went to hospital for precautionary examinations.

"Andrew Hore, hooker for New Zealand, has been cited by the IRB's independent Citing Commissioner for allegedly striking an opponent during the match between Wales and New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday," said a statement from the Six Nations Committee.

"The relevant incident occurred in the second minute of the match and involved Wales lock forward Bradley Davies.

"The time and date of the hearing, before the IRB's appointed independent judicial officer, have yet to be fixed."
