A cite for sore eyes

It has emerged today that Scotland coach Andy Robinson has plans to cite an England player after the Calcutta Cup match on 4th February.

This follows this week's admission by Robinson that Delon Armitage had been cited owing to his “arrogance” following England’s World Cup victory over Scotland in October.

Robinson confirmed that had Lewis Moody, rather than Armitage, committed the late tackle on Chris Paterson during the World Cup encounter, then no citing would have occurred. It was Armitage’s perceived attitude that caused Robinson to bring the incident to the attention of the citing officer.

And this blog can now exclusively reveal that England fullback Ben Foden will also be cited following the clash at Murrayfield next month . Foden is said to have once looked at Robinson “a bit funny”.
