    Cape Town - Brumbies flyhalf Matt Toomua has been issued with an off-field yellow card for a dangerous tackle on Sharks flyhalf Patrick Lambie during their Super Rugby encounter in Durban on Saturday.

    The incident occurred in the 51st minute of the match at Kings Park, which the Brumbies won 29-10.
