Kurt Baker of the Highlanders has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match against the Rebels.

Baker is alleged to have contravened the Lifting Tackle Law when he tackled Rebels' player Nick Stirzaker during the match at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin on Friday.

Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.

The Citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nicholas Davidson QC.

The Highlanders won the match 33-30
