Earlier this week, Albion did say they ‘regretted’ the incident, but have refused to make any further comment until after the hearing.
At the same hearing, Albion prop Jack Andrew and Bristol’s Jason Hobson will also have separate cases heard.
Andrew is charged with punching or striking contrary to Law 10.4(a).
He was sent off for the offence and Albion have already internally suspended him for three matches. The RFU panel will have to decide whether they think that punishment is sufficient.
Meanwhile, former Exeter and England prop Hobson is charged with acts contrary to good sportsmanship, contrary to Law 10.4(m).
