Decision expected on potential citing following alleged bite on Niall Scannell

Munster and the Stormers are waiting to see if there will be a citing following an allegation of biting in Saturday’s night’s clash at Thomond Park.

Reds forward Niall Scannell was allegedly bitten by an opposition player in the second half of Saturday night’s game, with Peter O’Mahony telling referee Andrew Brace that Scannell had been bitten in the leg during the scoring of Munster’s second try.

Brace and the TMO reviewed the footage but it proved inconclusive.

Munster have submitted their medical report and evidence to match commissioner Helen O’Reilly, who has 48 hours after the full time whistle to assess the evidence.

Scannell scored one of the tries in Munster’s 34-18 win.
