Scarlets prop Samson Lee has been cited for allegedly stamping during Saturday's 33-26 Heineken Cup victory over Harlequins.

Lee was sent to the sin-bin by referee John Lacey for striking England scrum-half Danny Care with his left foot in the second half of the clash at Twickenham Stoop.

The 20-year-old will appear before an independent judicial officer in Dublin on Thursday, the European Rugby Cup confirmed, and faces a ban from two to nine weeks if the citing is upheld.

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea claimed at the weekend that Lee should have been sent off, but Scarlets boss Simon Easterby said a yellow card was sufficient.

Scarlets face Racing-Metro in the European Cup on Saturday and the French side will be without scrum-half Maxime Machenaud who has been ruled out with a hand injury suffered in the 13-9 victory over Clermont.

Clermont's Fijian star wing Napolioni Nalaga will also go before the busy independent judicial officer after Irishman John West cited him for allegedly kneeing opposite number Marc Andreu during Sunday's 13-9 defeat to Racing Metro in their opening pool match which saw him sin-binned for 10 minutes.

Nalaga's citing drew a furious response from Clermont manager Jean-Marc Llhermet.

"The yellow card he recevied was already ridiculous, the citing is just grotesque!" he said.

Perpignan centre Lifeimi Mafi will also appear at the disciplinary in Dublin for getting a red card in the 27-22 defeat at Gloucester.

Mafi was sent-off by referee Leighton Hodges in the 74th minute for a dangerous tackle on Ryan Mills.
