England flanker Michael Lipman has been cited for allegedly stamping on an opponent during Saturday's Test match against New Zealand at Twickenham.

The Bath captain will face an International Rugby Board disciplinary hearing later this week.

Lipman was reported by match citing officer, South African Andrew Prior.

The case will be heard by IRB-appointed judicial officer Professor Lorne Crerar.

Lipman is back with his club following England's autumn Test campaign, with Bath facing a busy month of back-to-back Heineken Cup clashes against Glasgow, followed by Guinness Premiership appointments with Sale Sharks and Northampton.
