Carter cited for high tackle

5:48 am on 9 November 2009

The All Black first five eighth Dan Carter has been cited for a high tackle on the Wales scrum-half Martin Roberts in their 19-12 win in Cardiff yesterday.

Carter will appear before IRB-appointed judicial officer Jeff Blackett tonight before New Zealand's clash with Italy in Milan next weekend.

Carter felled Roberts late in the game with a crunching tackle and was booed from then on... however he still manage to take away the man-of-the-match award.

Australian Scott Nowland was the citing commissioner for yesterday's match.
