Johannesburg - There is no place for foul play in rugby, Springbok captain Jean de Villiers said on his arrival from Argentina, at OR Tambo in Johannesburg on Monday.

Two Argentinean players, Leonardo Senatore and Pablo Matera, were cited for alleged biting and eye-gouging incidents during their Rugby Championship match in Mendoza over the weekend.

The Springbok squad will assemble in Johannesburg on Thursday ahead of their third match in the championship against Australia in Brisbane next Saturday.
