Off-field yellow for Hoeata

Highlanders flank Jarrad Hoeata has been issued with an off-field yellow card for a dangerous tackle against the Crusaders.

The big loose forward was cited for making contact with Crusaders hooker Corey Flynn in the 20th minute of their clash in Christchurch on Saturday.

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. On further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an Off-Field Yellow Card was appropriate.
