James: Cited for allegedly striking Marius Tincu
Four players will face an independent disciplinary committee after being cited for incidents during round two of the Heineken Cup.
Ospreys prop Paul James will answer charges of 'punching or striking' Perpignan's Marius Tincu during the clash at the Liberty Stadium.
Tincu, himself, will also appear before the panel after he was cited for allegedly making 'contact with the eye/eye area' of James.
Tincu's team-mate Guilhem Guirado faces the same charge after being cited following an incident involving Ospreys lock Ian Gough.
Treviso centre Benjamin de Jager joins the trio after he was cited for an alleged strike with his head of Leicester No.8 Jordan Crane.
Meanwhile former England winger Phil Christophers will not face the panel after it was ruled that his citing from the Castres against Wasps game in round one came after the 50-hour deadline.
