Quade Cooper, the Australian flyhalf, has been cited for kneeing Richie McCaw, the New Zealand captain, in the head during the Tri-Nations/Bledisloe Cup match played in Brisbane on Saturday and won 25-20 by Australia.
The incident occurred in the 54th minutes of the match. Cooper and McCaw, amongst others, were on the ground. As Cooper got up his knee made contact with McCaw's face in the jaw area. This caused an angry response from the All Black, especially Brad Thorn.
It is SANZAR's practice for the Tri-Nations to appoint the citing commissioner from the country not involved in the match The citing commissioner in this case is Freek Burger of South Africa, the former Test referee. The citing follows a query from the All Blacks and will be refereed to the judicial officer, Judge Jannie Lubbe.
