    Cape Town - Cheetahs captain Adriaan Strauss has been cited for alleged foul play during their Super Rugby match against the Stormers at the weekend.

    As it happened: Stormers v Cheetahs

    Strauss is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (j) - Lifting Tackle  - when he tackled Stormers wing Kobus van Wyk.

    The incident occurred in the 23rd minute of the match at Newlands on Saturday. The Stormers won 33-0.

    The referee for the match, Stuart Berry, reviewed the incident with the television match official (TMO) and issued a yellow 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 (DJO) Adam Casselden

    All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a duty judicial officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

    For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO.
