Pretoria - Rene Ranger of the Blues has been cited for alleged foul play during their Super Rugby match against the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.
Ranger is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous tackling. A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously, when he made late and dangerous contact with Bulls wing Bjorn Basson in the 79th minute of the match in Pretoria.
Referee Steve Walsh issued a yellow card and also put the incident on report for review by the SANZAR citing commissioner by issuing a white card.
Upon further review of the match footage, the citing commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.
The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR duty judicial officer Mike Heron.
