Saracens' Springbok hooker Schalk Brits could be in a heap of trouble after his act of thuggery in the Barbarians' 8-59 loss to the B&I Lions.

Saracens' Springbok hooker Schalk Brits could be in a heap of trouble after his act of thuggery in the Barbarians' 8-59 loss to the British and Irish Lions in Hong Kong on Saturday,.

Brits was yellow-carded in the eighth minute, after he punched Saracens teammate and Lions flyhalf Owen Farrell.

Brits should know on Sunday whether or not he will face a disciplinary hearing.

Farrell was originally penalised by referee Steve Walsh for reacting to Brits' indiscretion, but Walsh reversed his decision on viewing television replays.

Lions head coach Warren Gatland said: "It was just a ruck situation. Owen is holding on to his jersey, Brits has got a bit frustrated and let fly.

"The good thing was that Owen wasn't injured or knocked out.

"I was pleased he [Brits] wasn't sent off [given a red card], and just given a yellow card. Had they played with 14 men it would have been less of a hit-out for us.

"Sometimes it is hard when someone lays a punch squarely on the side of your jaw not to react. We are going to emphasise from the start of this tour the importance of keeping our discipline."
