Mathewson cited for stamping

3:11 pm on 23 March 2014

Western Force halfback Alby Mathewson has been cited for stamping on an opponent during last night's upset win over Super Rugby champions the Chiefs.

The former All Black got off with a penalty for the alleged stamp on Chiefs forward Sam Cane in the third minute in Perth and the Chiefs may be rueing there wasn't further sanction as they lost 18-15.

Upon further review of the match footage, SANZAR's citing commissioner deemed that the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.
