Worcester centre Josh Matavesi has been cited for a challenge on Saracens scrum-half Neil de Kock.

The Fiji international, 22, will answer to a charge of a dangerous tackle during the Warriors' 47-17 Aviva Premiership defeat at Allianz Park.

Matavesi's challenge sparked a touchline confrontation between Worcester coach Richard Hill and Saracens counterpart Mark McCall, who called the incident "horrendous."

Hill said afterwards: "It was a very clumsy challenge and I don't condone anything like that. Josh is not a malicious player, but he caught de Kock, there's no doubt about that."

The hearing is due to take place in Coventry on Wednesday.
