UPDATE: Bristol Bears prop Kyle Sinckler will appear before an online independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday.

Sinckler has been cited following an exchange with referee Karl Dickson during the Bears’ 20-7 defeat of Exeter on Saturday.

Sinckler was heard asking Dickson, a former Harlequins teammate, ‘are you ****ing serious?’ after Chiefs hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie was penalised for a no-arms ram tackle.

The England star subsequently issued an apology on Twitter.

“Sinckler was cited by independent citing commissioner Duncan Bell following the match between Bristol Bears and Exeter Chiefs on Saturday 9 January 2021. This was for failing to respect the authority of the match official, contrary to World Rugby Law 9.28,” an RFU statement read.

“The independent disciplinary panel will be chaired by Richard Whittam QC, with Becky Essex and one other panel member to be confirmed.”
