London Irish number eight Chris Hala'ufia cited for high tackle
London Irish number eight Chris Hala'ufia has been cited for an alleged dangerous high tackle in his side's victory over Racing Metro.
The 33-year-old Tongan has been charged for his first-half tackle on Racing full-back Gaetan Germain.
The Exiles beat the French side 34-14 in the Heineken Cup on Saturday to keep their hopes of progressing out of the pool stage alive.
Hala'ufia has only recently returned from a seven-week ban.
The former Harlequins man has a history of being suspended, having faced three, four and eight-week bans in 2010 and 2011 prior to his latest suspension for a high tackle on Gloucester's Olly Morgan.
Irish are currently without a number of first-team regulars because of disciplinary reasons.
Back Delon Armitage, 27, is currently serving a five-week ban, centre Shontayne Hape, 30, is reaching the end of his four-week suspension and fellow centre Steve Shingler, 20, is awaiting the outcome of his appeal against a four-week ban.
