Fraser Brown cited for Tip-Tackle on Elliot Daly

Scotland’s Fraser Brown has been cited for his dangerous tackle on Elliot Daly in the Six Nations defeat by England.

Brown was given a yellow card for the Tip-tackle in the 61-21 loss on Saturday but now faces a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday to review the incident.

If the disciplinary panel deem the tackle to be worthy of a red-card Brown will miss Scotland’s Six nations finale against Italy.

The law specifies that if Daly lands on his head it is a red card offence.
