Martin Corry cited for eye gouging against Ospreys

Martin Corry cited for eye gouging against Ospreys

Theres been a lot of talk this week over the past weekends Heineken Cup match between Leicester and the Ospreys. More specifically, it was an incident between Martin Corry and Richard Hibbard that has caused the stir.

Corry has been cited for striking or making contact with the eye of Ospreys hooker Hibbard, who can be seen in this short clip looking rather heated to say the least.

Following the match Ospreys falsely accused Tigers prop Julian White of gouging, but that has since been apologised for, with White not being cited, and denying any such action.

If Corry is proven guilty, the ban could carry for anywhere between 12 weeks to three years.

Denis Templeton, citing commissioner for the match, cited Corry for "an alleged strike/contact with the eye/eye area in contravention of Law 10.4 (a) and 10.4 (k)".

A date has yet to be set for the disciplinary hearing.

Wed like to stress that this footage doesnt show much, but some have requested seeing the incident as it happened. For the disciplinary hearing though, they will (presumably) have other angles from the TV company involved, so that could reveal more.
