Cape Town - Free State Cheetahs centre Rayno Benjamin
appeared before a SARU Judicial Hearing late on Monday afternoon after
receiving three yellow cards in the Currie Cup competition.
According to the SARU regulations, a player must appear
before a judicial hearing after receiving two yellow cards in one match or
three overall in a competition.
Benjamin was ordered to appear before a SARU judicial
hearing following his two yellow cards over the weekend against the Pumas in
Nelspruit. He was shown a yellow card for a dangerous tackle and then another
for a team offence, resulting in a red card. He also received a yellow card
earlier in the competition against Western Province.
His hearing was held late on Monday via teleconference
before Duty Judicial Officer advocate Rob Stelzner, who decided to impose no
further sanction on the player.
Benjamin is therefore available for selection for the
Cheetahs’ home fixture on Saturday against the Sharks in Bloemfontein.
