Cape Town - Chiefs wing Asaeli Tikoirotuma has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (b) - Stamping or trampling, during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.
The incident occurred in the 47th minute of the match between the Cheetahs and Chiefs at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
The match finished in a 43-all draw.
An off-field yellow card may be issued by the SANZAR citing commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.
In this case the referee for the match, Craig Joubert, did not act upon the incident. Upon further review of the match footage, the citing commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.
