Sharks lock Botha warned for physical abuse
Cape Town - Sharks lock Ruan Botha has fallen foul of SANZAAR who issued the player with a warning for physical abuse.
Botha is said to have contravened Law 9.12 which states that "a player must not physically abuse anyone".
The incident occurred in the 58th minute of the Sharks' encounter against the Highlanders at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday.
A warning may be issued by the SANZAAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.
The Sharks proved too strong for their counterparts from New Zealand on the day, running out 38-12 winners.
