Cape Town - Griquas No 8 Carel Greeff and
Eastern Province Kings lock and captain Steven Sykes can be considered for
Absa Currie Cup action this weekend following the outcomes of their SARU
Judicial Hearings on Wednesday.
The hearings took place via
teleconference and advocate Robert Stelzner acted as the Judicial Officer in
Greeff was cited for a dangerous
tackle in the Currie Cup match against the Free
State Cheetahs last Friday in Kimberley. The citing was not upheld and Greeff
can therefore play this weekend.
Sykes received two yellow cards in
their clash against the Pumas last Friday in Port Elizabeth. He was
yellow carded in the 35th minute for charging into a ruck and
tackling a Pumas player dangerously above the shoulders and also issued with an
off-field yellow card for alleged foul play.
Advocate Stelzner ruled that the
two yellow cards were sufficient and that no further sanction should be imposed
on the player.
