All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick has been issued with an off-field yellow card for his dangerous tackle on Adries Bekker.

The young tight forward was deemed to have contravened Law 10.4 (j) Lifting a Player from the ground and either dropping or driving that Player’s head and/or upper body into the ground during the match at the weekend between South Africa and New Zealand in Soweto.
 
Retallick lifted Bekker in a tackle that resulted in Bekker hitting the ground with his upper body while his legs were still in the air.

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 incident was not acted on by the referee for the match: Alain Rolland and on further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an Off-Field Yellow Card was appropriate.
