Chance Peni of the Western Force has been cited for alleged foul play during his side's win over the Melbourne Rebels at nib Stadium in Perth on Friday night.
Peni is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (a) which states: A player must not strike an opponent.
The referee for the match, Will Houston, issued a Yellow Card for the incident which occurred in the fifth minute.
Upon review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the Red Card threshold for foul play.
The case will be heard at 5pm (AEST) on Sunday.
