Cheika faces hearing

Stade lost the game to Harlequins after Quins triumphed through a late Gonzalo Camacho try that fly-half Nick Evans converted.

The first complaint against former Leinster boss Cheika centres on comments during half-time and/or after the game he made to or near a match official, while the second centres on remarks made after the game finished to a European Rugby Cup employee.

He has been summoned to attend a hearing in Dublin on July 19, when the matter will be dealt with by an independent three-man disciplinary committee.
