    2016-05-01 08:42

    Cape Town - Paul Schoeman has been cited for foul play during the Cheetahs Super Rugby match against the Reds on Saturday. 

    Schoeman is alleged to have contravened 10.4 (e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent including the action known as the “stiff arm" tackle.

    Upon 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 SANZAAR Duty Judicial Officer Nigel Hampton QC.

    All SANZAAR 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.
