Argentina No. 8 Senatore cited for biting in Super Rugby

May 15, 2016

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) Argentina international Leonardo Senatore has been cited for biting in the Jaguares' narrow loss to the Sharks in Super Rugby on Saturday.

No. 8 Senatore is alleged to have bitten Sharks flanker Keegan Daniel on the arm in a ruck near the end of the tight game in Buenos Aires. The Sharks won 25-22.

Agustin Creevy, the Jaguares and Argentina captain, was also cited, this time for a dangerous tackle on the other Sharks flanker, Jean Deysel. It resulted in Deysel leaving on a stretcher with a neck injury.

Super Rugby organizing body SANZAAR said the citing commissioner deemed both incidents worthy of red cards and both players must appear at disciplinary hearings.


Senatore faces a minimum ban of 12 weeks if found guilty of biting.
