    Cape Town - Taqele Naiyaravoro of the Waratahs has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

    Naiyaravoro is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (i) Tackling, tapping, pushing or pulling an Opponent jumping for the ball in a lineout or in open play during the match between the Waratahs and Hurricanes at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on 9 July 2016.

    The referee for the match, Chris Pollock, awarded a yellow card for the incident which occurred in the 57th minute.

    Upon further 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 Robert Stelzner SC.

    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.
