Slap on the wrist for Toomua

Sat, 16 Mar 2013 21:21

Brumbies flyhalf Matt Toomua has been issued with an off-field yellow card for a dangerous tackle on Patrick Lambie on Saturday.

Toomua, who scored a try in the Brumbies' convincing 29-10 victory, made the tackle on his Sharks counterpart in the 51st minute of the match.
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 referee did not act the incident on as a try was scored from the advantage being played. On further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an Off-Field Yellow Card was appropriate.
