Kaino handed Citing Commissioner Warning

Date published: March 11 2016

Blues loose forward Jerome Kaino has been issued a warning for an illegal tackle on Hurricanes hooker Leni Apisai on Friday at Eden Park.

Kaino tackled Apisai without the ball and contravening Law 10.4 (e); Dangerous tackling around the head, and wasn't penalised for the incident, but upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed a Citing Commissioner Warning was appropriate.

A Citing Commissioner Warning may be issued by the SANZAAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the Red Card threshold for citings.
