Port Elizabeth - EP Kings centre JP du Plessis will receive no further sanction after attending a South African Rugby Union (SARU) hearing on Monday.
Du Plessis had to appear at the hearing after receiving a red card in his side’s Currie Cup clash against the Free State Cheetahs in Elizabeth last Friday.
The teleconference hearing was presided over by Advocate Vusi Msiwa, with Du Plessis being represented by EP Rugby chief executive officer Charl Crous.
In viewing the incident, Msiwa ruled that the red card given to Du Plessis in the 46th minute of the match was sufficient punishment for the contravention under law 10.4a.
He ruled that no further sanction was necessary, which means Du Plessis will be available for selection for the Kings' match against the Pumas in Nelspruit on Friday.
