Warning for Blues lock

Date published: February 28 2015

Blue lock Josh Bekhuis has been issued with a Citing Commissioner Warning for punching a Cheetahs player.

Bekhuis was found guilty of contravening Law 10.4 (a) Punching or Striking in the 24th minute of Friday's Super Rugby clash at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein. The Cheetahs won the game 25-24.
A Citing Commissioner Warning may be issued by the SANZAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the Red Card threshold for citings.
Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed a Citing Commissioner Warning was appropriate.
