2010-10-10 16:14

Cape Town - Vodacom Western Province’s hooker Deon Fourie will appear before a SARU judiciary hearing after he was cited for foul play during Saturday’s Absa Currie Cup Premier Division game against the Sharks.

Fourie was cited under Law 10.4 (M) - for an act contrary to good sportsmanship. The WP hooker was cited after his right hand allegedly made contact with face area of the Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis.

The incident occurred during the 61st minute of the game. WP defeated the Sharks 33-21.

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

    Oh dearie, dearie me! Can't the Sharks take the fact that they were beaten? "The WP hooker was cited after his right hand allegedly made contact with face area of the Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis." It's a contact sport, and it's not as if Deon gave Bismarck a snotklap! Come on, grow up or change your sport to bowls!

    They should cite Aplon for diving into the ribs of Strauss ( Sharks no. 12) suddenly Bakkies looks like an angel. It was late and it was with intent.

  • jakes - 2010-10-10 17:25

    Dis reg so, flippen vuilgat WP speler, maar sal seker geen skorsing kry nie.

  • ModderOtter - 2010-10-10 17:27

    Wel, hy het beslis nie hard genoeg kontak gemaak nie want Bissie het nog aangespeel daarna!!

  • haha - 2010-10-10 17:31

    This guy from broke back mountain is stupid now wp will rely on hahaha shimange and an untested hooker sidney tobia's great stuff i hope you get a good suspension................

  • clint@Robert Kay - 2010-10-10 17:55

    Robert, learn the laws before you make as a***of yourself. The citing officer is independent and has nothing to do with either team. It is extremely rare for any team to ask for an inquiry, especially in South Africa. We basically have a no cite policy. This would have come from the citing officer himself.

  • G Divvy - 2010-10-10 18:01

    @Robert Kay you're such a t****r. It's not the Sharks that cite you k***. Get over yourself and wipe that giant chip-shaped object off your shoulder.

  • @ Marius - 2010-10-10 18:02

    don't be a sour grape now, its a contact sport, if you cant take go watch the commonwealth games.

  • Ref - 2010-10-10 18:03

    He " made contact" with the master of playing on the wrong side of the rules giving away penalties. Shame. Foeitog.

  • SHARKIE - 2010-10-10 18:06

    Robert, the Sharks are not know for citing opposition players and I suspect that the citing commissioner was involved. The Sharks generally fight their battles on the pitch. Judging by the sour grape comments coming from WP supporters after Super final, I was bracing myself for uncalled for comments from these guys after the last match. Imagine what the comments would have been had WP lost?

  • Gustav van Rooyen - 2010-10-10 18:10

    Marius you are right, if it was Bakkies it would have been at least a yellow..

  • Chris - 2010-10-10 18:11

    Province looking much better with their Boks. What a backline! Silly dirty play by Aplon and amusing watching Bismark give Fourie a lesson in an off-the-ball incident.

  • Jones Jason - 2010-10-10 18:13

    @Robert. An INDEPENDENT citing commissioner. You'd think people would think before they comment.

  • jo - 2010-10-10 18:18

    sharkie get a life

  • Pieter - 2010-10-10 18:28

    Tipies WP, maak asof ander unies die vuilgate is maar hulself is skuldig.Ek hoop die Jagluiperde wen saterdag.

  • Blue Jake - 2010-10-10 18:29

    Thug.

  • BALSAK(alias Blue Bul Hater) - 2010-10-10 18:43

    Deon Fourie is an HONEST player. Hy't niks verkeerd gedoen nie, Bismarck het hom kwaad gemaak, so wat verwag hy.. WP ALL THE WAY!!!! The Sharks by 5 against the Bulls and WP by 10!!! Wee Pee jou JAM TERT!!!!!

  • Joke - 2010-10-10 19:24

    I remember the incident quite clearly. Bismarck was the one who started it and Fourie gave him a bit back. One of the incidents you see in rugby all the time. How the hell was it cited?

  • Dirkie - 2010-10-10 19:58

    Maruis, lyn regter moes daai gewys het ek stem saam. Deon moes Bismark harder geslaan het, laaik hom maar die du Plessis broers hou van n fight. Het 1ste begin. Haaie moet ophou kerm oor klein goedjies wat nie n verskil gaan maak nie, top the log en het home semi, . In teendeel dink ek as n WP ondersteuner sou ek die Haaie eerder weer wil speel vir n final. Hulle choke maklik en Frystaat is op dreef. Nag ou grote

  • nelson - 2010-10-10 21:04

    sit die bliksem in sel 6604 op robbeneiland. Sit AL die WP spelertjies daar laat hul soulblkke kap. Blou is my Bloed!!!!!

  • sipho notshina - 2010-10-10 21:23

    Ha haa You dutchmen make me laugh with your silly comments....What a joke! Can't even believe u tits own a computer....hahahh. Bulls all the way!

  • OMG! - 2010-10-10 22:35

    Have this “citing commissioners (p*$**s)”ever played rugby themselves or is it also AA appointments to make rugby more “colourful?” What a joke ‘making contact with the eye area”...my a@#$! You either put your fingers in the opponent’s eye or not. It’s like the Schalk Burger incident against the Lions. A smack in the face is also eye-couching these days. Sometimes players only take a swipe at someone and it is rated as eye-coucghing.To the Bakkies fans he is a thug and should not even be allowed on the field. Yes the commissioner is not from the Sharks but they pointed the incident out...learn the game boy! The Sharks/Bulls will try anything to upset the WP now although the Sharks should not worry seeing that the BB will slaughter them next week. BISMARCK is just another arrogant, dumb p*$*k (boereworsie) and Fourie is anyway from Snorcity so no surprises there! With Liebenberg out and Fourie to follow it’s bye-bye WP with the Chimp the next hooker available.

  • MISTA G - 2010-10-10 22:54

    Was at the game, Shimange should have been sighted for causing so much Kak with the beast...continually slapped him in the head and shoved him into the turf long after the contact of the ruck was finished. Was very disappointing to see as a province fan

  • Ted - 2010-10-11 03:17

    Hmmmmmm tasty, will WP go into the semis with hooker #3&4?? this didnt look like a punch to me, as the tv simply didnt show that angle. Funny thing is, the touch judge was standing right there (watch the replay) and saw the whole thing. Surely he would have flagged a punch??!! I should think he would get no more than a warning, but then, when has the citing official ever given out warnings? I wonder if he saw the high tackle by pretorius in plain sight that was determined chest high? The one around the neck? Yes, that one. Hmmmmmm really peculiar how this citing process works, my mind boggles.....

  • Kevin - 2010-10-11 05:35

    Common Free State.....if WP get into the finals then SA rugby is S@@t

  • StormersSupporter - 2010-10-11 06:35

    Once again bull. This happened right infront of me. Bismark started it. Yes, according to the letter of the law, he can be cited. But then so should Bismark. How come he can get away scott free? Why is there always such double standards!? And please stop making stupid comments, like he is a thug and bakkies looks like an angel! Please, that just shows how retarded you really are.

  • Cliff Bradley - 2010-10-11 06:47

    Blue Jake: Learnt from the best - "BAKKIES BOTHA" you have a cheek to talk about thugs

  • NCT - 2010-10-11 06:50

    @ Robert's criticism, did any of you retards stop to think that maybe one person correcting him was enough? And uhm, where exactly is your proof that the Sharks management has nothing to do with it? Everything in rugby is politics you p****s, you honestly think a team has nothing to gain by trying to influence the citing commissioner? Now stop your f*****g trolling!

  • Johan Gerber - 2010-10-11 06:50

    All you bunch of sour grape Bulls supporters who wailed like you were at a funeral when Bakkies & co got cited , Please shut up. No wonder the Bulls supporters are known the world over as " MOANERS"

  • JR - 2010-10-11 07:17

    ok here we begin, at least Province has at leaset one reason for loosing to Frestate.

  • piepies - 2010-10-11 07:43

    aan al die WP manne onthu ons het jul lat wen sodat jul n home semie kan he ne so muni grootkop kry die was nie die beste sharks span opi veld,wag vir jul op durbs ini cheers SHARKS fo eva

  • Mac - 2010-10-11 08:23

    Almal wat so oor die WP se nr 2 kla, kyk net 'n bietjie hoe het Bismarck ook vir Jean de Villiers in die gesig gegryp en weggestamp na hy getackle was en dit nog terwyl Jean besig was om op te staan. Nou sien almal dit mis!!

  • Richard - 2010-10-11 08:25

    Schalk Burger taught him well

  • DG NORTIER - 2010-10-11 09:00

    @StormersSupporter 2010/10/11 06:35 AM: Nothing happens to Bismarck, on the same grounds that nothing happened to Jimmy Cowan cheating in pulling back John Botha by his jersey. He should actually have landed with his knee in the back Cowan, much more painfull than a headbutt. Nothing happens to the cheats in rugby for example Richie McCaw? Cheats and thugs go together, they are of the same school. The one is a coward the other aggressive.

  • StuartW - 2010-10-11 09:17

    Dis nou 'n pot stront...hoekom is Bismarck dan nie ook gesite vir al sy mannewales nie...Hy gaan die Sharks en die Bokke nog baie kos met sy van die bal af insidente....

  • Dutchmen - 2010-10-11 09:25

    @sipho, who did you steal your computer from? probably 1 of my tit friends! you should be cutting the lawn you chop! WP JOU SOET SOET DENG!

  • Super W.P. - 2010-10-11 09:41

    PIEPIE jy gaan in jou broek piepie waneer jy agterkom die sharks suck

  • Gert - 2010-10-11 09:46

    Ag, al die gemoan van die Bulle en Sharks is al so algemeen - niemand steur hul in elk geval daaraan nie, want dit is net suur druiwe omdat die WP in die semi's is. Wat betref Deon, hoekom word Bismarck ook nie uitgewys nie. Komaan Coetzee, doen jou plig en laat Bismarck ook voor n tugkomittee verskyn. Hy het alles begin met sy gesigslanery na Jean de Villiers. En vir die Cheetas wat teen die WP is, sies vir julle, WP is die span wat julle ondersteun al die pad, en weet julle, as die WP moet verloor teen julle Saterdag, sal ek nie omgee nie, want Cheetas is my 2de span.

  • GW - 2010-10-11 09:46

    He should have clapped his head off his shoulders. Province is never involved in foul play. What happend when Kanko trampled a man on the ground? Dont worry WP supporters we nailed there sick ass to the floor boards. Last week the gappie supporters said the bookies had it wrong when they were favourites to win? Now they are looking fopr reason to back there pathetic display of rugby on saturday.

  • Gert - 2010-10-11 09:48

    Wie de hel is die onregverdige ou wat Deon uitgewys het? Hoekom kon hy nie vir Bismarck uitwys met sy slanery na Jean de Villiers nie. Komaan Coetzee, teken beswaar aan, al die bewyse is daar hoe Bismarck vir Jean geslaan het.

  • Boerseun - 2010-10-11 10:33

    Dis reg wys die vuil goed uit! Nou nog net daai viulg@t vermeulen ook...... VRYSTAAT met 5 punte.

  • jona - 2010-10-11 10:36

    you people who is moaning and groaning,wake up and get a life! bismark actions is far worse than aplon's and fourie 2gether. rather say, dirty sharks player because they have been shitting themselves after a good beating.

  • GHENA - 2010-10-11 10:41
