Horne Handed Off-Field Yellow
Waratahs centre Rob Horne has been issued with an off-field yellow card for a shoulder charge on Cheetahs counterpart Robert Ebersohn.
The incident occurred in the second minute of the match between the Cheetahs and Waratahs at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
Horne contravened Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling when he tackled Ebersohn leading with his shoulder and without the use of arms after Ebersohn had passed the ball.
An off-field yellow card 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.
In this case the Match Officials did not act on the incident and on further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.
