Afoa face Heineken Cup woe
Ulster are set to be without John Afoa for their Heineken Cup semi-final after he was cited for a dangerous tackle against Munster.
The New Zealand World Cup-winning prop is alleged to have made the dangerous tackle on Felix Jones during the second half of Ulster's 22-16 quarter-final win at Thomond Park. And Afoa, who must now go before an independent judicial officer in Dublin on Thursday to learn his fate, is set to miss the last-four showdown against Edinburgh at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday April 28, given that the minimum suspension for a dangerous tackle is three weeks. Afoa could even be ruled out for longer as a mid-range suspension would result in a ban of six weeks, with the top-end range set at 10 weeks or more.
