Scotland's Brown cited for Daly tackle
Scotland hooker Fraser Brown could be ruled out of his side's Six Nations finale against #Italy after being cited for a dangerous tackle on England wing Elliot Daly. The Glasgow front row spent 10 minutes in the sin-bin for his challenge on Daly early in what turned out to be Scotland's crushing 61-21 loss in the Calcutta Cup Six Nations clash at Twickenham on Saturday.
There were just two minutes on the clock when French referee Mathieu Raynal showed Brown a yellow card after consulting the television match official, with many England fans in a packed Twickenham crowd and even several neutral observers feeling the hooker had been fortunate to avoid a red card.
However, Brown was cited Monday by French citing commissioner Patrice Frantschi and his case will be heard by a disciplinary panel today. 'Fraser Brown, the Scotland hooker, has been cited by the independent citing commissioner at Saturday's RBS 6 Nations match betwn England and Scotland at Twickenham, read a Six Nations statement. 'The cited offence, dangerous tackling, took place in the second minute of the match in which the cited player was yellow carded.

'The disciplinary hearing, before an independent Six Nations Disciplinary Committee of three, is scheduled for London on Tuesday, March 14.
Daly left the field after the challenge that appeared to see him land on the back of his shoulders and sent his head crashing to the turf. Although he returned, Daly was only on the field for a few more minutes before taking no further part in the game.
Victory saw England retain the Six Nations title and equal world champions New Zealand's record of 18 successive Test wins by a ‘tier one' or leading rugby union nation.
Scotland complete their Six Nations at home to #Italy on Saturday in what will be coach Vern Cotter's final match in charge of the Dark Blues.
