Melbourne Rebels wing Lachlan Mitchell has been cited for alleged foul play during the game against the British and Irish Lions.

He has been reported for lifting Lions wing Simon Zebo.

In a statement, the Australian Rugby Union said: "Mitchell has been cited under law 10.4 (j), lifting a player from the ground and dropping that player into the ground while that player's feet are still off the ground, such that that the player's upper body comes into contact with the ground."

The incident happened in the 52nd minute of a game the Lions won 35-0 at AAMI Park.

Mitchell will face a disciplinary hearing in Melbourne tomorrow at 3am Irish time.
