Is in trying to stop the La Rochelle try (16 mins) - Nowell makes the initial tackle, La R player is dipping, Simmonds comes in second and catches Murimurivalu with his upper arm. Is visible in one of the replay angles. Citing commissioner has worked quite hard to find that one.

Having looked at the replay from 2 angles, dont see where the Citing Officer is coming from as Jack is the main tackler with Jo trying to get under to stop try without success!

It's not shown in the BT Sports 'highlights show', but if you look at the slo-mo replay from the live BT Sports coverage, from the dead ball camera view, Joe swings a right arm in as part of his tackle, and contacts bicep to forehead of Murimurivalu.

It might be a complaint from La Rochelle staff, or could be a keen citing officer.

With the way they are policing contact with head area, he might be in trouble and Harvey Skinner could be on the bench for the Sale game.

Just watched the tackle. Unfortunately I have to agree that it was a red card offence, Joes bicep comes into direct contact with the oppositions head. Completely accidental and was in the act of attempting to stop a try, but still as a chiefs fan Id be aggrieved if it was the other way around.
