Cape Town - Griquas No 8 Carel Greeff will appear before a SARU disciplinary committee on Wednesday after being cited for a dangerous tackle in the Absa Currie Cup match against the Free State Cheetahs in Kimberley last Friday.

Greeff was cited for allegedly contravening law 10.4 (f) and law 10.4 (j) by tackling Free State Cheetahs centre Rayno Benjamin in the 73rd without the ball and lifting the player from the ground and dropping or driving him into the ground whilst the player’s feet were off the ground.

Advocate Robert Stelzner has been appointed as Judicial Officer. The hearing will take place on Wednesday, August 25, 2015 at 14:00 via teleconference.

Meanwhile, Eastern Province Kings lock and captain Steven Sykes will also face a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday.

Sykes received two yellow cards in the Currie Cup clash against the Pumas last Friday evening in Port Elizabeth.

He was yellow carded in the 35th minute of the first half for charging into a ruck and tackling a Pumas player dangerously above the shoulders (law 10.4 – h). He was also issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening law 10.4 (a), by allegedly pushing his elbow into the face of an opponent.

Advocate Stelzner has been appointed as Judicial Officer and this hearing will take place on Wednesday at 15:30 via teleconference.
