    2015-02-21 15:53

    Cape Town - Owen Franks of the Crusaders has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

    Franks is alleged to have contravened 10.4 (a) Punching or striking in an incident which occurred in the 10th minute of the Super Rugby match between the Highlanders and Crusaders at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin on February 21, 2015.

    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 Robert Stelzner SC.

    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 Duty Judicial Officer.
