The All Blacks flanker Adam Thomson's in danger of missing the rest of the side's tour of UK and Europe after being sin binned for standing on Scottish forward Alasdair Strokosch's head in the 51-22 win at Murrayfield this morning.

Thomson was sin binned early in the first half and Scotland coach Andy Robinson's has indicated the matter is being addressed by the citing commissioner.

The Australian flanker Scott Higginbotham was recently given a two game ban for his kneeing All Blacks' captain Richie McCaw in the Brisbane Bledisloe Cup test.
