VIDEO: Creevy cited for 'alleged' hair-pull on Eben Etzebeth

NEWS: London Irish hooker Agustin Creevy has been cited for allegedly pulling South African World Cup-winner Eben Etzebeth’s hair during a European Challenge Cup quarterfinal away to Toulon on Sunday.


A statement issued by tournament organisers European Professional Club Rugby said: “Creevy is alleged to have pulled the hair of the RC Toulon second-row, Eben Etzebeth, in the 35th minute of the match in contravention of Law 9.27 –a player must not do anything that is against the spirit of good sportsmanship.”

French club Toulon won 19-18, with former Argentina captain Creevy, 37, facing a hearing on Wednesday.

Toulon will now play Saracens, another English side, in this weekend’s semifinals.
