Johannesburg - Reds prop James Slipper will appear in front of a South African, New Zealand and Australian Rugby (SANZAR) Judicial Hearing in Cape Town on Monday.
The hearing comes after Slipper was yellow-carded for a dangerous tip tackle on Lions hooker Bandise Maku during their Super Rugby match in Johannesburg on Saturday. Slipper has been cited for an alleged breach of Foul Play Law 10.4 (j) that relates to lifting an opponent off the ground and dropping or driving him into the ground whilst his feet are still in the air.
The incident occurred in the sixth minute of the match. The hearing will take place in the Western Province Rugby Union Boardroom and will be chaired by SANZAR Judicial Officer, Advocate Rob Stelzner.

GEN De La Rey says the Stormers have had a pretty bad run when it comes to refs, assistant refs and TMO calls this season. He says such glaring ref errors have no place in the professional game.
