    Rhodes appeared before a South African Rugby Union (SARU) judicial committee in Cape Town following the postponement of his disciplinary hearing at the end of last season.

    The player was cited for a tackle in the second half of the Currie Cup final when he placed his arm around Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis’ neck in a maul and maintained his grip for a few seconds.

    This was in breach of law 10.4 (e) relating to dangerous tackling.

    The presiding judicial officer Adv Donny Jacobs was satisfied with the referee’s decision to penalise the player during the match and felt that no further sanction was necessary.
