Kurt Baker of the Highlanders has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match against the Rebels in Dunedin on Friday.

Baker is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (j): Lifting Tackle - when he tackled Rebels player Nick Stirzaker.

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 judicial officer Nicholas Davidson.

All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a judicial officer, to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

For a matter to be dispensed with in this manner, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the judicial officer.

Nature of Offence: Law 10.4 (j) Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player's feet are still off the ground such that the player's head and/or upper body come into contact with the ground is dangerous play.

Elapsed time in match when incident occurred: 12th minute
