Italy’s flanker Alessandro Zanni is tackled by Australia’s lock Sitaleki Timani (left) during the International Rugby Union match at the Artemio Franchi Stadium in Florence, November 24. Timani has been cited to appear before the International Rugby Board (IRB) disciplinary commission for striking an Italian player in the 22-19 Test win in Florence on Sunday.

Australian second-rower Sitaleki Timani has been cited to appear before the International Rugby Board (IRB) disciplinary commission for striking an Italian player in the 22-19 Test win in Florence on Sunday.

Timani, 26, who has 10 caps for the Wallabies, is accused of hitting a rival in the 13th minute of the clash and is now in doubt for the final Test of the tour, against Wales in Cardiff on Sunday.

No date for the hearing was given but if Timani is suspended Dave Dennis could start in the second row or Kane Douglas if he has recovered from a knee injury.
