    Cape Town - Lions flyhalf Elton Jantjies has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (e) (Dangerous tackling) during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.
     
    The incident occurred in the 29th minute of the match between the Lions and Cheetahs played at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

    Jantjies dangerously tackled Cheetahs flyhalf Johan Goosen around the neck and then flung him to the ground.
     
    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 incident was acted on by the referee Mark Lawrence and on further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.

    The Cheetahs won the match 26-5.
