Leicester Tigers lock Ed Slater has been cited for striking prop Zander Fagerson in their Champions Cup defeat by Glasgow Warriors last Saturday.

The 28-year-year had already been suspended by Tigers for two weeks after an internal disciplinary hearing.

But he may receive a longer ban when he appears before a European Professional Club Rugby hearing in London on Monday.

Tigers found Slater guilty after reviewing an incident during the first half of the 43-0 loss.

He will definitely miss Anglo-Welsh Cup ties against Northampton Saints and Saracens.

A club statement said: "Ed regrets his actions in the heat of a vital club match and will look forward to his return to action following suspension."
