Free State Cheetahs prop Schalk van der Merwe will appear before a South African Rugby Union judicial committee on Tuesday.

This follows after he received a red card for a dangerous (spear) tackle on Blue Bulls fullback Jurgen Visser in the team's Currie Cup clash in Bloemfontein at the weekend.

The Cheetahs won 22-7 to book their place in the play-odds.

The player received a red card in the 74th minute, for lifting Visser in a tackle and failing to bring him back to the ground safely, therefore breaching Law 10.4 (j).

The hearing will take place in Cape Town.

André Oosthuizen has been appointed the judicial officer.
