    Perenara escapes ban, will face Lions

    2016-08-01 14:21

    Cape Town - Hurricanes scrumhalf TJ Perenara has escaped sanction for foul play against the Chiefs and will be free to face the Lions in Saturday's Super Rugby final.

    In the 57th minute of the semi-final in Wellington at the weekend, Chiefs captain Sam Cane tackled Perenara without the ball in an attempted clean-out at a ruck.

    Perenara, who was on the ground, lashed out with both boots and connected with Cane's head.

    The All Black scrumhalf showed immediate concern for Cane's welfare - and match officials didn't revisit the incident.

    SANZAAR confirmed that there were no citings from either of the weekend’s semi-finals, which means Perenara is free to play in the final against the Lions.

    Sport24 feels Perenara is a lucky man.

    Yes, he did show immediate concern for Cane, but fact is, he kicked an opponent in the face - which ordinarily would amount to a red card and subsequent suspension.
