USA Eagles captain Todd Clever has been cited for dangerous tackling and dangerous charging.

Update 17/09/2011: Clever cleared

The offence was deemed to be at the lower end of the scale of seriousness.

“In particular the judiciary officer determined that the contact was between the USA player’s upper arm and the victim player’s chest,” said the judiciary statement.

“It was a glancing contact as the victim player was already falling away as a result of a legitimate tackle by another USA player. There was no adverse effect on the victim player or the match and the offence could not be described as a body check, which would have been more serious.”

    Cheap... It's very late and quite dangerous. Yellow card for sure, not sure I would recommend a suspension though.
