Only a warning for Bekhuis

Date published: March 2 2015

Josh Bekhuis of the Blues has been issued with a Citing Commissioner Warning for contravening Law 10.4 (a) Punching or Striking during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred in the 24th minute of the match between the Cheetahs and Blues played at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein.

An 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.

Law 10.4 (a): Punching or striking, A player must not strike an opponent with the fist or arm including the elbow.
