Cape Town - Griquas No 8 Carel Greeff and Eastern Province Kings lock and captain Steven Sykes can be considered for Absa Currie Cup action this weekend following the outcomes of their SARU Judicial Hearings on Wednesday.

The hearings took place via teleconference and advocate Robert Stelzner acted as the Judicial Officer in both instances.

Greeff was cited for a dangerous tackle in the Currie Cup match against the Free State Cheetahs last Friday in Kimberley. The citing was not upheld and Greeff can therefore play this weekend.

Sykes received two yellow cards in their clash against the Pumas last Friday in Port Elizabeth. He was yellow carded in the 35th minute for charging into a ruck and tackling a Pumas player dangerously above the shoulders and also issued with an off-field yellow card for alleged foul play.

Advocate Stelzner ruled that the two yellow cards were sufficient and that no further sanction should be imposed on the player.
