Keats cops four-week ban

2011-05-09 07:09

Wellington - Hurricanes scrumhalf Tyson Keats has been suspended for four weeks after a SANZAR Judicial Hearing found him guilty of dangerous play.
Keats was cited for a tip tackle on Blues scrumhalf Alby Mathewson in a Vodacom Super Rugby match in Wellington last Friday. Keats was yellow carded for the incident in the 62nd minute of the match.
The Judicial Hearing took place in Wellington on Monday.
SANZAR Judicial Officer, Nick Davidson QC ruled that whilst Keats’ actions were not premeditated the tackle was poorly executed and reckless as to the danger it created.
Davidson found the tackle carried a high degree of danger but concluded that Keats did not deliberately drive Mathewson into the ground.
In his ruling, Davidson reiterated that the IRB had called for vigilance in eliminating the tip tackle from the game as its danger was immense. He added that such disciplinary recourse was necessary to act as a deterrent to players.

    Honest question: When last was a Stormers player cited?

      Dal2000: Honest answer please: What about those instances where a few Stormers players should have been cited? I am sure even you should understand now.

    @Cliff 'Im an idiot' Bradley, So how is the conspiracy theory that you always crap on about looking? 4 weeks is more than anyone usually gets. I think there is a conspiracy against Kiwis, whinge, whine, bleat, moan.

      BCC : Don't you have a sheep to shag !!!

      BCC - 2011-05-09 08:16

      Don't you have a third world health system and economy to be part of?

      CliffBradley - 2011-05-09 19:27

      BCC: We were running the country well enough , till you bunch of liberal F%^Ks meddled Show go shag a sheep

      Mickey Fin - 2011-05-10 05:34

      Well said BCC. I see you don't get an honest answer from Cliff 'Im an idiot' Bradley. But that can be expected from his type.

    So I was wrong on this one , but looking at the tackle , a SAFFA player would have got 12 weeks

      Craig - 2011-05-09 08:42

      Especially if his name was BAKKIES...

      CliffBradley - 2011-05-09 19:29

      Craig : Not going to say so , otherwise the sheep shagging lot say I whine & bleat ( Their Girlfriends bleat ) but you are spot on

    Why is dumb and dumber Burger never cited?

      Lloyd - 2011-05-09 09:29

      Marcell you beter hope Cliffie doesn't see this post.

      Dal2000 - 2011-05-09 10:31

      They figure citing Burger won't change anything, he won't learn from it just like he won't learn from his rubbish captaincy decisions.

      CliffBradley - 2011-05-09 19:29

      Lloyd: You F%^king right !!!

  • Mickey Fin - 2011-05-10 05:32

    @CliffBradley. You wanker. It is so obvious you have a massive chip on your shoulder. You are most probably 5 foot tall and suffer from "small man syndrome". Sh!t luck that you are stuck in that hell hole because your highest qualification is std 8 woodwork like your future president Malema and no other country wants you. Jy en SAFFA is dieselfde en ek kry julle jammer! En ja, ek ondersteun die Crusaders!
