Two offences by Wallaby
Wallaby forward Scott Higginbotham has been cited for two offences in Australia's 18-all draw with New Zealand in Brisbane on Saturday.
The citings were for 'punching or striking' the All Blacks captain Richie McCaw.
Higginbotham has been cited under Law 10.4.a: Punching or Striking.
Both of the incidents occurred in the 26th minute.
First Higginbotham struck McCaw with the knee in the head and when they became involved in a scuffle, he also head-butted the Kiwi skipper.
The citing is to be considered in the first instance by judicial officer Jannie Lubbe, who will hold a hearing via conference call on Monday.
