Fergus McFadden: Leinster and Ireland wing cited for stamp
Leinster and Ireland back Fergus McFadden has been cited following an alleged stamping incident in the Pro12 win over Connacht on New Year's Day.
A Pro12 statement said that the incident happened in the eighth minute of Leinster's 13-0 win.
Video footage showed McFadden appearing to make contact with the head of Connacht's Nathan White during a ruck.
Under rule 10.4, which includes stamping or "trampling", an offence can lead to a ban of a number of weeks.
The statement said that the citing hearing would "take place shortly".
Leinster moved above Connacht into second place in the Pro12 table after winning the Irish inter-provincial derby.
McFadden has 29 Ireland caps but missed out on a place in the squad for the World Cup.
