Waratahs winger Taqele Naiyaravoro has been cited for tackling Beauden Barrett in the air in his side’s loss to the Hurricanes.

The mammoth winger was yellow-carded by referee Chris Pollock at the time of the tackle, in the 57th minute on Saturday, but the offence was deemed to meet the red card threshold.

In a release, SANZAAR Naiyaravoro was found to have “contravened Law 10.4 (i) Tackling, tapping, pushing or pulling an Opponent jumping for the ball in a lineout or in open play”.

The referee for the match, Chris Pollock, awarded a yellow card for the incident which occurred in the 57th minute.

SANZAAR duty judicial officer Robert Stelzner SC will be hearing Naiyaravoro’s situation.
