Lachlan Mitchell is cited for allegedly lifting Simon Zebo during Melbourne Rebels match with the British and Irish Lions.

Melbourne Rebels wing Lachlan Mitchell has been cited for alleged foul play during his side's clash with the British and Irish Lions on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old has been reported for lifting Irish winger Simon Zebo in an incident that occurred in the 52nd minute, during the tourists' 35-0 victory at AAMI Park.

In a statement, the Australian Rugby Union said: "Mitchell has been cited under law 10.4 (j), lifting a player from the ground and dropping that player into the ground while that player's feet are still off the ground, such that that the player's upper body comes into contact with the ground."

The Lions face Australia in the second Test on Saturday.
