WALES lock Bradley Davies and Ire­land flanker Stephen Fer­ris have both been cited for foul play dur­ing Sun­day’s Six Na­tions clash be­tween the sides in Dublin.

The cit­ings were made by the match com­mis­sioner, Ital­ian Achille Reali.

Davies was sent to the sin bin for a reck­less tip-tackle on Ire­land re­place­ment Don­nacha Ryan, while Fer­ris

was given the same pun­ish­ment for his tackle on Davies’ sec­ond-row part­ner Ian Evans.

Fer­ris’s yel­low card in the last minute of the game proved costly as full-back Leigh Half­penny kicked the re­sult­ing penalty to snatch a 23-21 win for Wales.
