Wallabies star Taniela Tupou has been cited for alleged foul play within the loss to the Brumbies, placing him doubtful for the weekend’s conflict towards the NSW Waratahs.

SANZAAR stated in an announcement that the incident occurred on the 18:40 mark of the Reds’ 16-12 defeat.

At that second, Tupou put his full drive right into a clear out on Brumbies flanker Jahrome Brown, sending his rival flying. The referee noticed nothing improper on the time and Queensland bought a penalty quickly after.

[Brown’s] not occupied with a breakdown for the following 4 phases and that’s the effectiveness of arriving with physicality.”
