SAFA continue ref clamp down

2011-11-10 08:03

Johannesburg - One of South Africa's top rated referees, Victor Hlungwane, could become the latest match official to feel the full wrath of SAFA as football's governing body continue to clamp down on officiating errors.

The South African Football Association have taken the steps to eradicate match officials' increasing mishaps in the PSL, with Lebohang Daniels, Robert Smith, Harry Lekitlane and Robert Sithole all having already received lengthy bans for their respective refereeing blunders.

And Hlungwane could be next in line after he incorrectly awarded Orlando Pirates a penalty against Jomo Cosmos two weeks ago.

Buccaneers ace Rudolph Bester successfully duped the match official after going down unchallenged in the Ezenkosi area, with Julio Leal's men successfully converting from the spot to earn a draw in Port Elizabeth.

The contact had looked minimal at best, and video replays clearly showed alleged suspect Lehlohonolo Nonyane had not touched the Pirates man.
