Waratahs lock Timani, 26, was reported by match commissioner Freek Burger following the 13th-minute incident.

The time and date of Timani's disciplinary hearing has yet to be confirmed.

Australia saw Timani's fellow second row Rob Simmons receive an eight-week suspension earlier this month after he was cited for a dangerous tackle in the Wallabies' appointment with France.

Simmons, though, is to appeal the ban.

Australia conclude their European tour against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.
