Scotland back-row Ryan Wilson has been cited for allegedly gouging an
opponent during Saturday’s Six Nations win over England.
The Glasgow number eight allegedly “made contact with the eye area of an opponent” in the 37th minute of Scotland’s 25-13 win at Murrayfield, tournament organisers have announced.
Wilson clashed with England’s Nathan Hughes during the fixture in Edinburgh, with the incident now set to be examined.
Scotland triumphed in the match to take a first Calcutta Cup win for 10 years.
A disciplinary hearing will be held before a Six Nations Disciplinary Committee on Wednesday.
