Hooker Olivier Azam has been cited for allegedly making contact with the eyes or eye area of Cardiff Blues' Jamie Roberts during the EDF Energy Cup final at Twickenham on April 18.
Azam has been summoned to appear before a Rugby Football Union Disciplinary Panel on Monday, April 27th at the Bristol Filton Holiday Inn following a report from the match citing commissioner Mike Rafter.
The panel will be chaired by Christopher Quinlan.
Gloucester Rugby acknowledge the citing and are looking into the matter.
The club will make no further comment until they have concluded their inquiries and will only make a full statement at that point.

Following the 48-10 Aviva Premiership win over London Welsh on Saturday, Dan Murphy praised his team mates for battling right up to the very last minute in difficult conditions and maintaining the momentum that the team have built in 2015.
Henry Purdy scored two memorable tries against London Welsh at Kingsholm on Saturday, and attributed the first one to hard work on the training ground before describing how much he's enjoying playing his rugby alongside friends like Callum Braley.
Gloucester dominated for long periods against Wasps at the Ricoh Stadium on Sunday afternoon but were made to pay the price for defensive lapses and a number of key refereeing decisions not going their way in a 32-21 defeat.
A number of the Gloucester Rugby squad this week benefitted from an initiative organised by Circle 2 Success (C2S) and the Rugby Players Association (RPA) to help players develop their business planning skills.
