    Cheetahs lock off the hook

    Cape Town - A SANZAR Judicial Hearing has found Cheetahs lock Andries Ferreira not guilty of alleged foul play during their Super Rugby clash against the Force in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
    Ferreira was cited for contravening Law 10.4 (e) (Dangerous Tackling: A player must not tackle an opponent dangerously - A tackle around the neck or head of an opponent is dangerous play).
    The incident occurred in the 76th minute of the match, which the Cheetahs won 17-13.

    The SANZAR hearing was held via video conference on Tuesday and was heard by Jannie Lubbe SC.
    "After careful consideration of the limited video evidence available and the testimony of the player, the judicial officer concluded that he was not convinced on the balance of probabilities that the player acted in breach of the said law. Accordingly the citing is dismissed," said Lubbe.
