Beauden Barrett off the hook after red card

    Cape Town - A SANZAAR Judicial Committee Hearing has found Hurricanes flyhalf Beauden Barrett guilty of contravening Law 10.2(a) Intentionally Offending after he received two yellow cards for deliberate knockdowns - and was subsequently issued with a red card - during the Super Rugby match against the Waratahs last Friday.

    However, no further sanction has been imposed on the All Blacks and Hurricanes star.

    The SANZAAR Judicial Hearing held via video conference on Monday was heard by Adam Casselden SC (chairperson), Mike Mika and De Wet Barry.

    In his finding, the Judicial Committee Chairman Adam Casselden SC ruled the following: 

    "The Judicial Committee conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles, and additional evidence from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Aaron Lloyd." 
    “With respect to sanction the Judicial Committee ruled, after considering a number of factors, including the player’s exemplary disciplinary record, that the Player’s ordering off merited no further sanction.”

    "The player is therefore free to play and will serve no suspension”.

    As a result, Barrett will be eligible for selection for the Hurricanes' Round 8 clash against the Blues in Auckland on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 09:35 (SA time).
