Liam Williams and Robin Copeland face disciplinaries after double red card

Liam Williams and Robin Copeland were given their marching orders after an incident in Sunday's Cardiff Blues vs Scarlets Pro12 match at the Millennium Stadium. Williams offended at the breakdown for his second yellow, before Copeland stamped on him.

Williams received a yellow card earlier in the match for a dangerous tackle on Alex Cuthbert, so when he killed the ball, he received his second yellow, which naturally resulted in a red card. 

Copeland took exception to Williams slowing it down and appeared to stamp his head. He was shown a straight red card for the contact between boot and head that could be seen on TV replays.

The independant Citing Commissioner has deemed that Williams' first half tackle was sufficiently dangerous to have warranted a red card, so he has been cited, under Law 10.4 (e): Dangerous tackling. A player must not tackle an opponent whose feet are off the ground.

Update: Both Williams and Copeland will face disciplinary hearings in Dublin on Thursday.
