London Irish centre Shontayne Hape has been cited for an alleged dangerous tackle during the Heineken Cup defeat at home to Edinburgh on Saturday.

Citing commissioner Yves Thieffine has reported Hape for an alleged infringement on Edinburgh back row David Denton during the first half of his side's 20-19 loss.

Hape's case will be heard on Thursday at European Rugby Cup's headquarters in Dublin.

Also cited after that match is Edinburgh's Sean Cox, who had a running battle with Hape for much of the game.

Cox is alleged to have struck Hape in the second half of the fixture on the opening weekend of European action.

And Perpignan's David Marty has been cited for an alleged dangerous tackle on Exeter Chiefs' Gonzalo Camacho.
