Sharks Springbok Francois Steyn has been cited for alleged foul play during a Super Rugby match against the Chiefs on Saturday.

Steyn is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4 (h): A player must not charge into a ruck or maul.

Charging includes any contact made without use of the arms, or without grasping a player.

The incident occurred in the 78th minute of the match, won 37-29 by the Chiefs in Hamilton, when he made contact with Tim Nanai-Williams of the Chiefs at a breakdown.

Upon further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.
