    Luatua faces anxious wait to learn red card fate

    Cape Town - Blues flank Steven Luatua faces an anxious wait to learn his fate after receiving a straight red card for a dangerous tackle in his side's Vodacom Super Rugby defeat to the Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday.

    As it happened: Chiefs v Blues

    Luatua's off the ball tackle on Chiefs wing Tim Nanai-Williams shortly before half-time left referee Ben O'Keeffe with no option but to reduce the visitors to 14 men for the remainder of the match.

    The Chiefs, who led 15-9 at the time of the incident, went on to record a 41-26 victory.

    The case is to be considered by the SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee at 08:00 (SA time) on Sunday.

    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.

    In next weekend's Week 3 action, the Blues welcome the Highlanders to Eden Park in Auckland (Saturday, March 11 at 08:35 SA time).
