BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Australia captain James Horwill has been cited for stamping or trampling against British and Irish Lions lock Alun-Wyn Jones in the opening test of the series.

The Australian Rugby Union said in a statement on Sunday, the day after the first test, that Horwill was cited for the alleged incident in the third minute of the match won 23-21 by the Lions, and in which the Wallabies suffered injuries to key players.

Horwill will appear at a judicial hearing later Sunday in Melbourne, site of the second test next Saturday.
