Rugby: Pumas' Senatore faces ban for 'bite', Springboks recover to win
MENDOZA, Argentina (AFP) - Argentina No.8 Leonardo Senatore was cited on Sunday for allegedly biting South Africa lock Eben Etzebeth during a Rugby Championship match in Mendoza on Saturday.
Etzebeth told Australia-based referee Steve Walsh he had been bitten on the arm during a Test won 22-17 by the Springboks, but the television match official found no evidence.
However, a post-match review of the mid-second half incident by the citing commissioner led Championship organisers Sanzar to issue a statement.
"Senatore allegedly bit South African player Eben Etzebeth. The incident occurred in the 61st minute of the match at Estadio Malvinas Argentinas.
