    Rhule suspended for 3 weeks, misses ZERO rugby

    2018-05-28 14:00

    Cape Town - Stormers wing Raymond Rhule has been suspended for three weeks after the red card he picked up against the Lions at Newlands last Saturday.

    But, with South African teams currently on a Super Rugby break until June 30 and with Rhule not in the Springbok mix, he will not miss any matches. 

    The Stormers went on to lose the match 26-23.

    According to a SANZAAR statement, Rhule pleaded guilty to contravening Law 9.25: A player must not intentionally charge or obstruct an opponent who has just kicked the ball.

    Stormers centre JJ Engelbrecht, meanwhile, was suspended for one week after his yellow card - but he will also not miss any matches. 

    While the Springboks play four Tests in June - one against Wales and three against England - the Stormers are next in action on June 30 when they take on the Jaguares in Buenos Aires. 

    The Stormers have two matches left this Super Rugby season and they must win them both to stand any chance of making the tournament playoffs.
