Cape Town - Rob Horne of the Waratahs has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match on Saturday, April 21, 2012.
Horne is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (j) Lifting a player from the ground and dropping or driving that player’s head or upper body into the ground whilst that player’s feet are still off the ground when he was involved in a dangerous tackle on Rebels player Kurtley Beale in the 60th minute of the match between the Waratahs and the Rebels at Allianz Stadium.
Horne was issued a yellow card on the field by referee Jonathan Kaplan, however on further review of the incident after the match the SANZAR Citing Commissioner deemed the incident had met the red card threshold.
The citing is to be considered in the first instance by SANZAR duty judicial officer Mike Heron.

Even he and his team say so. It was an error in the moment , he is cleared. Rob sorry for the inconvenience mate\

    Too many of these lately.The player should have been given a RED card and a minimum six week suspension without pay.Only after a player has their neck broken will someone wake up and realise that a yellow is NOT good enough.I punish you by breaking your neck,ending your career and my punishment is a ten minute suspension.What a joke.

    The powers to be are not serious to route out dirty play. Doctor Thug du Plessis gets a yellow. Now we want this guy to get 6 weeks. Is it because he is not a Shark or Stormer ?
