Blue Bulls prop Dean Greyling was suspended for one week after he was found guilty of foul play in the Currie Cup match against the Lions.

Blue Bulls prop Dean Greyling was suspended for one week after he was found guilty of foul play in the Currie Cup match between the Blue Bulls and the Golden Lions on Saturday 9 August in Johannesburg.

Greyling was charged with having committed an act of foul play, in contravention of rule 10.4(b), that states 'a player must not stamp or trample on an opponent'.

The incident in the 69th minute of the match at Ellis Park involved Golden Lions prop Jacques van Rooyen.

The hearing took place on Wednesday, 13 August in Cape Town and the Judicial Officer, advocate André Oosthuizen found Greyling guilty of contravening Rule 10.4(b) and imposed a one week suspension, commencing from the date of the hearing.

Greyling is therefore available for selection this weekend.

Greyling missed last week's game against Western Province because of a calf strain, so his ban is, effectively, meaningless.
