Two-week ban for Deysel

2011-05-31 12:32

Durban - Sharks flank Jean Deysel has been suspended for two weeks after being found guilty of foul play by a SANZAR Judicial Hearing held in Durban on Tuesday.
Deysel was cited for a dangerous tackle on Waratahs centre Tom Carter during their Super Rugby match last Saturday. He received a yellow card for the offence.
SANZAR Judicial Officer Peter Ingwersen SC found Deysel guilty of contravening Foul Play Law 10.4 (e) for dangerous tackling of an opponent without the ball.
The Judicial officer concluded that this was a lower end offence and ruled that Deysel receive the minimum sanction of two weeks.

Deysel will miss the Sharks' upcoming away clashes against the Cheetahs (Saturday, June 4) and Lions (Saturday, June 11).

    Is that all they can give this thug? He fully intended to demolish Carter with that stupid headlock. If that was sakkies botha he would have got life (i dont like sakkies at all).

      graham.bartholomew - 2011-05-31 12:44

      It was intentional, but not that dangerous compared to many citing's. I think the ruling was fair and was expecting it. Sharks still have Alberts to destroy the other teams.

      sparkster - 2011-05-31 12:47

      Agree, i think he thought he was in UFC.He is lucky that wasnt Corne Kruge, he would have got a nice elbow in the face.

      Marcell - 2011-05-31 12:50

      Al wat Alberts kan destroy is die toilet rol.

      Rob van den Heuvel - 2011-05-31 12:53

      @Marcel - funny, I think if you ask Hulk Burger about the broken ribs he received in last years CC final he'll differ...just saying.

      jontheb - 2011-05-31 12:54

      So he'll be fresh for the Bulls clash! Methinks the second bulls v sharks encounter will be a very different affair. Sharks will raise their physicality - die manne gaan mekaar moer!!!

      gooinat - 2011-05-31 12:55

      @Marcell,Bakkies what can he destroy,scrumhalfs that are far smaller than him or atleast he tries,speak sense man.

      jacques.alberts - 2011-05-31 12:56

      If u can't even spell Bakkies why do u even comment.Go back to school.

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 12:58

      Damn fortunate if you ask me. And I agree with @watalife. If this had been Bakkies - 8 weeks minimum. At the very least Deysel should have copped the same as Rhodes. I have watched the incident a few times now, and it genuinely seems that Deysel was out to cause grievous bodily harm. I like Deysel, and he is not a dirty player per se, but this seemed malicious (sheez he could have let Carter's neck go after 2/3/4/5 seconds?)

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:05

      @Jacques Did you wake up with a hang over fool? Getalife and get some humour.

      Dan - 2011-05-31 13:19

      I agree, although I like Sakkies. SANZAR has a different set of rules for each team and each player. Their rulings during the past few seasons were quite shocking.

      Howzitekse - 2011-05-31 17:46

      Bakkies is suspende two or three times a year, and should get special treatment. He is widely viewed as the dirtiest player in the world at international level.

      JoeStormer - 2011-05-31 21:56

      @Sparkster Corne Krige?????? Asseblief, my voelkop is groter as Krige man. Tipies Stormer

  • gooinat - 2011-05-31 12:42

    Lucky boy,if it was a Aus or NZ judicial officer he would have got 4 weeks.

  • Marcell - 2011-05-31 12:46

    Kan ons regtig die NZ en AUS kwalik neem as hulle die SA spelers regmatig straf. Hierdie is nou weer 'n geval waar die tuis unie met moord wegkom. Hy moes minstens 6weke gekry het.

      Albert Roets - 2011-05-31 13:02

      Ek dink spelers wat enige ander speler by die nek gryp moet verban word van rugby speel, dis plein weg gevaarlikke spel en jy kan iemand se hele toekoms opneuk...!!! As jy so wil speel gaan stoei of gaan cage fighting toe, daar kan jy so aangaan...!!!

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:09

      For the first time I fully agree with you.

      Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:19

      @watalife. Bly om te sien daar is hoop vir jou (maar ongelukkig nie vir jou span nie) :)

      ARRA - 2011-05-31 13:46

      Albert -as die klomp rugby spelers maar net wil kom stoei sal hulle ook nie so maklik seerkry nie-daar mag jy selfs n speartackle doen - nee wat die game word deesdae deur refs bepaal en beamptes wat vinnig is om spelers van ander spanne uit te wys vir eie gewin,se weer laat hulle kom stoei

      Howzitekse - 2011-05-31 17:48

      Carter was being provocative. I am sure this was taken into consideration, just as the guy who punched Rhodes was not sanctioned.

  • A.K - 2011-05-31 12:47

    Lucky, i thought he would see at least 4weeks

  • YB Normal - 2011-05-31 12:56

    Ja ook geskat 4 weke so die straf wees, dink hy is baie gelukkig om net 2 te kry, en kan dan darem nog die laaste game van die Guppies se S15 reeks vir die jaar speel op Moftus park

      Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:02

      Hy gaan wens hy was vir 6 weke afgeboek.

  • The_Empire - 2011-05-31 12:59

    What about Wynand Oliviers uppercut in the ruck this weekend against the Cheetahs???

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:10

      nothing will ever be done about that.

      SAFFA-CAT - 2011-05-31 13:11

      @The Empire - the citing commissioners are still laughing at fact, they were so hysterical when the footage was presented to them, they missed the 24 hour cutoff to in fact cite Meisiekind.

      ARRA - 2011-05-31 13:48

      and Andries full swing at the Brumbie

  • Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:01

    @gooinat. Is dit nie bietjie vroeg vir papsal nie. Die artikel is oor vuilspel deur Deysel. Waar kom meneer Botha in?

      gooinat - 2011-05-31 13:08

      En waar kom Alberts in die artikle in,tyd jy moet gaan slaap ou maat,Mamma wag om vir jou om in die bed te sit.

      Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:22

      Ek is al klaar in die bed. Drink net gou die laaste koppie rooibos. Ek was nie die eerste om Alberts te betrek nie.

  • molefeP - 2011-05-31 13:11

    Not fair is it. Why should Deysel recieve preferential treatment? Just because his team is higher up the points table? Smacks of under the table money to me.

      A.K - 2011-05-31 13:16

      molefe get over it dude. look @the incidents separately, Deysel was just holding the guy, not much could have came from that in terms of injury. Rhodes pulled that guy a la Bakkies, he deserved that 6weeks, maybe more.

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:19


      Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:23

      And we can't even blame the ancESTORS for this one :)

      Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:28

      Dit het vir my gelyk so al asof hy die ou verwurg het.

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:35

      @AK are you a medical doctor or just plain stupid? why dont you allow some big oke to grab you around the neck like that and see what happens.

      A.K - 2011-05-31 13:44

      @getalife you just have to WATCH the incident and see it wasnt that dangerous...probably why he only got two weeks. thats what im trying to articulate. i would love to see them try grab me like that, i weigh 140kg's and dont think their arm wouyld go around my neck :-)

      watalife - 2011-05-31 13:49

      @AK Ok point taken...140kg? you should try prop for the bulls boet?

      A.K - 2011-05-31 14:03

      @watalife lol if Gilbert finds a way to make a ball with pastries, i will consider it! lol sorry i like teasing mysel...makes it easier to live with all these fat rolls :-)

      Disa2011 - 2011-05-31 16:00

      watalife you midget

      Disa2011 - 2011-05-31 16:11

      your boyfriend can only put a scarf around your neck and you will shout 'high tackle"

  • Kok - 2011-05-31 13:13

    So, he'll be playing against the bully beef boys from up north. Thugs vs Thugs.

      Marius Swart - 2011-05-31 13:23

      Ai Kok julle kan maar net nie iets mooi se van die bulle nie.Sal maar in die gees van die game sien jou aanmerking.Sterkte vir jou stormer span aanvaar ek.

  • rugby_guru - 2011-05-31 13:27

    Thanks Deysel, still no public apology to all your fans out there...

      Marcell - 2011-05-31 13:33

      Where? Oh, the three under the tree?

  • Charlie - 2011-05-31 13:50

    Iemand moet by Bakkies oorvat.....

  • Cherelynn - 2011-05-31 14:13

    I'd just like to say that I think that there is no consistency when it comes to dangerous tackles etc. The NZ and the AUS sentence our players very harshly. My point is : no matter what kind of dangerous tackle made, be it a high tackle(neck, shoulders, face, head), spear tackle(intentional or not), swinging arm etc, these should have the same ban. Players think because of the inconsistency, they can do it and hopefully they don't get cited and hopefully they will then realise that a ban could be in-order if there is consistency. Fair is fair at the end of the day!

  • milswanka - 2011-05-31 16:52

    Carter was scared shitless when Deysel grabed him...but he is very lucky though. hehehe he looked like a fish being grabed by an eagle.

  • JoeStormer - 2011-05-31 21:55

    Ek is sommer lus en bl!ksem vir Deysel, wat 'n dom idioot
