Attwood facing Six Nations ban

RUGBY UNION: Gloucester and England second row Dave Attwood is facing a lengthy ban after being cited for stamping. La Rochelle complained about Attwood’s clash with Petrisor Toderasc during the French side’s 24-18 Amlin Challenge Cup win on Sunday. President Vincent Merling said: “Some of his teeth are smashed. It’s very serious.” Attwood, 23, played in two of England’s autumn internationals but, if found guilty, could miss the Six Nations.
