Cape Town - Sharks loose forward Keegan Daniel has leapt to the defence of WP skipper Deon Fourie who was cited for allegedly eye gouging Daniel during their Currie Cup clash at Newlands over the weekend.

VIDEO: Deon Fourie eye gouge?

Fourie was cited on Monday and will appear before a disciplinary committee in Cape Town on Tuesday at 12:00.

The incident occurred in the 12th minute of the match after Daniel pulled Fourie to the ground. No action was taken by the referee.

The incident hardly looks like a deliberate eye-gouge though, and Daniel was quick to defend Fourie.

He tweeted the following after the match, which WP won 25-19:

"Just to clear things up, there was no eye gouge from Deon, he's not that type of player. Rugby is a contact sport and these things happen."
