Cape Town - Western Province loose forwards Jebb Sinclair and Tyrone Holmes - who received red cards for punching over the weekend - are set to appear before a South African Rugby Union disciplinary hearing.

According to the Rugby365 website, the hearing will take place on Tuesday.

Holmes and Sinclair were both sent off for punching in their 43-27 loss to the Sharks in Durban on Saturday evening. A yellow card for Wilhelm van der Sluys four minutes from time ensured the Cape side ended with 12 players on the field as the home side grabbed a bonus point victory.

Sinclair and Holmes will be charged under Law 10.4(a) - punching.

Peter Ingwersen has been appointed as the judicial officer.

WP, who have now slipped from first to third on the overall Currie Cup log, next face Griquas at Newlands on Saturday (15:00 kick-off).
