Kurt Baker Highlanders v Rebels 2014

In hot water: Kurt Baker

Highlanders wing Kurt Baker has been cited for alleged foul play during Friday's Super Rugby win over the Rebels.

Baker is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (j) Lifting Tackle when he tackled Rebels scrum-half Nick Stirzaker at Forsyth Barr 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 Nicholas Davidson QC.

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.
