Hot water: Schalk van der Merwe

Free State Cheetahs prop Schalk van der Merwe will appear before a SARU judicial committee on Tuesday after receiving a red card for a dangerous tackle in Saturday's Currie Cup clash against the Blue Bulls.

Van der Merwe was sent off in the 74th minute of the match in Bloemfontein for lifting Blue Bulls full-back Jurgen Visser in a tackle and failing to bring him back to the ground safely, therefore breaching Law 10.4 (j).
