Johannesburg - Lions flank Trevor Hall, Blue Bulls lock Flip van der Merwe and SWD Eagles centre Sinethemba Zweni, will appear before SARU judicial committees on Tuesday after being cited for foul play during their Currie Cup games this weekend.

Van der Merwe was cited for punching or striking an opponent. The Blue Bulls lock punched the Lions hooker Martin Bezuidenhout in the face with his left fist during the third minute of the game.

The Blue Bulls defeated the Lions 32-18.

Hall was cited for acts contrary to good sportsmanship. The Lions flank was on top of Van der Merwe during the 81st minute of the match and with his open hands made contact in his face, near the eye area.

Zweni was cited for lifting an unidentified Griffons player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground.

The incident occurred in the 19th minute of the game. The SWD Eagles defeated the Griffons 18-14 in this Currie Cup First Division match.

The judicial hearings of all three players will take place on Tuesday at the Johannesburg Stadium from 09:30.
