Cape Town - The Barloworld Toyota Pumas fullback Johan Jackson will attend a SARU judicial hearing after he was cited for foul play during Friday evening’s Absa Currie Cup Premier Division match against the Xerox Lions at Coca-Cola Park.

Jackson was cited under Law 10.4 (J) for lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving a player into the ground.

He was cited after he allegedly lifted Lions fullback Burton Francis from the ground, tipped and then turned him past the horizontal.

The incident occurred during the 32nd minute of the game. The Pumas defeated the Lions 34-27.

A date and time of the hearing will be confirmed on Monday.

    The player was lucky not to get a yellow card ,but then the 3 officials handeling the game were a disgrace to the profession, and should be sited aswell.

    I think the referee and his assistants should be cited for being a disgrace to rugby. The referee was THE most IMPORTANT man on the field and did not allow the game to flow at all. The scrums were a fiasco, the players were baffled by his decisions and the poor spectators paid for a penny-whistle performance by an inadequate musician. Certainly the pool of up to standard referees can't be so low that referees like those should be allowed onto a field where provincial rugby is played.
