Off-field yellow for NZ lock

2012-10-07 08:13
Cape Town - All Black lock Brodie Retallick has been issued with an off-field yellow card after he committed a dangerous tackle during their 32-16 Rugby Championship win over the Springboks in Soweto on Saturday.

Retallick was punished for contravening Law 10.4 (j): Lifting a player from the ground and either dropping or driving that player’s head and/or upper body into the ground.
 
He lifted South African lock Andries Bekker in a tackle that resulted in Bekker hitting the ground with his upper body while his legs were still in the air. The incident occurred in the 20th minute of the match at the FNB Stadium.
 
An off-field yellow card may be issued by the SANZAR citing commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.
 
In this case the incident was not acted on by the referee for the match, Alain Rolland, and on further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.
