Bulls lock to face SANZAAR disciplinary hearing
Cape Town - Bulls lock RG Snyman will appear before a SANZAAR disciplinary hearing after he was red carded in his side’s 17-10 Super Rugby defeat to the Highlanders on Saturday.
Snyman was sent off late in the game at Loftus Versfeld after recklessly charging into ruck, in the process shoulder-charging a Highlanders player.
Snyman's sending off also saw a try scored by the Bulls disallowed.
Snyman is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4(h) - A player must not charge into a ruck or maul.
The case is to be considered in the first instance by the SANZAAR foul play review committee which will take place at 09:00 on Monday.
All SANZAAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to the foul play review committee to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.
For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the player appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the foul play review committee.
