Referee did not take action
Reds captain James Horwill has been issued with an off-field yellow card for 'stamping'.
It follows his contravening Law 10.4 (b): Stamping or Trampling - during the 11-all draw with the Western Force in a Super Rugby match at the weekend.
Horwill made contact with Western Force player Pek Cowan at a breakdown with his feet.
The incident occurred in the third minute of the match 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 referee for the match did not act upon the incident.
Upon further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.
