Goodes cited for foul play

Date published: May 16 2015

Hurricanes prop Reggie Goodes has been cited for alleged foul play during Saturday's clash with the Chiefs in Wellington.

Goodes is alleged to have contravened 10.4 (h) Dangerous Charging and 10.4 (k) Dangerous play in a scrum, ruck or maul, when he made contact with Chiefs player, Michael Allardice, in an incident which occurred in the 36th minute of the match which the Hurricanes won 22-18 at Westpac Stadium.

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 SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Robert Stelzner SC.

All SANZAR 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.
