Barrett in the dock
Blues flanker Kane Barrett has been cited for alleged foul play during his side's defeat to the Chiefs in Auckland on Saturday.
Barrett is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (b) Stamping or trampling when he made contact with Chiefs prop Ben Tameifuna at a breakdown. The incident occurred in the 20th minute of the match.
The alleged offence is separate to another incident that a red card was issued for in the 22nd minute.
Upon further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.
The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR duty judicial officer Nicholas Davidson.
All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a duty judicial officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.
For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the duty judicial officer.
