Sarries' Farrell cited for dangerous tackle

Updated: 

Owen Farrell faces an anxious wait to find out if he can play in Saracens' European Champions Cup final against Racing 92 after being cited for a dangerous tackle in Saturday's last-four win over Wasps.

England fly-half Farrell was sin-binned for his tackle on Wasps scrum-half Dan Robson in the 51st minute of Sarries' 24-17 victory at the Madejski Stadium.

And Farrell may yet find himself in more trouble with a European Professional Club Rugby statement reading: "EPCR has received a citing complaint against the Saracens outside-half, Owen Farrell, following the European Rugby Champions Cup semi-final against Wasps on Saturday, 23 April 2016.

"Farrell is alleged to have committed a dangerous tackle on the Wasps scrum-half, Dan Robson, in the 51st minute of the match at Madejski Stadium in contravention of Law 10.4 (e)."

A low end punishment for a guilty verdict carries a two-week suspension, with six weeks for a mid-range dangerous tackle, and between 10 and 52 for a top end.

With Sarries' Champions Cup final versus Racing set to take place on May 14 it remains to be seen if Farrell will be cleared to play, while a ban could also affect his involvement in the Premiership play-offs.

Wasps' Simon McIntyre has been cited for an alleged kick at Saracens' Maro Itoje in the same match.
