Blues flank Kane Barrett has been cited for stamping on an opponent in his team's defeat to the Chiefs at Eden Park.

Barrett is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (b) Stamping or trampling when he made contact with Chiefs tighthead prop Ben Tameifuna at a breakdown in the 20th minute of the match.

This is separate to another incident that a Red Card was issued for in the 22nd minute.

Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the Red Card threshold for foul play.

The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nicholas Davidson.
