Western Province utility forward Michael Rhodes was cited on Monday for a dangerous tackle in Saturday's Currie Cup Final against the Sharks in Cape Town.

Rhodes will appear before a SARU disciplinary committee on Tuesday at 3pm in Cape Town. Advocate Donny Jacobs has been appointed the judicial officer.
