    Cape Town - Bulls loose forward Arno Botha has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (e): Dangerous tackling, during their Super Rugby clash against the Stormers at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday evening.

    The incident occurred in the 57th minute of the match, which the Stormers won 19-14.

    Botha tackled Stormers wing Bryan Habana after the player had called for a mark inside the 22m area.
    An off-field yellow card may be issued by the SANZAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.
    In this case the referee for the match, Jonathan Kaplan, acted on the incident by changing the free kick to a penalty. Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.
