United States captain Todd Clever has been cited following an incident in his side's 13-6 victory over Russia in their pool C match in New Plymouth on Thursday.

Clever was cited for a dangerous tackle and dangerous charge. The openside flanker was involved in an incident late in the match when he appeared to make a late tackle without his arms on replacement Victor Gresev, Reuters reports.

The disciplinary hearing will take place in Auckland at a date to be confirmed.
