    Cape Town - Bulls hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle has been cited for dangerous contact in Saturday's 36-26 Super Rugby victory over the Force at Loftus Versveld in Pretoria.

    Ralepelle is alleged to have charged into a ruck without using his arms and striking Force winger Alfi Mafi.

    On-field officials did not hand out a penalty for the offence, but after reviewing match footage the citing commissioner deemed the incident worthy of a red card.

    The judicial officer for the hearing will be Jannie Lubbe and he will hear the case on Monday afternoon.

    Butch James pled guilty to a similar offence playing for the Lions in last year's Super Rugby competition and received a four-week suspension.
