    Cape Town - Lions hooker Robbie Coetzee has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

    Coetzee is alleged to have contravened 10.4 (j) Lifting Tackle, in an incident which occurred in the 49th minute of the match between the Cheetahs and Lions at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday.

    The referee for the match, Jaco van Heerden, issued a yellow card for the incident. Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.

    The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nigel Hampton QC. 

    All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

    For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO.
