Western Province and Stormers forward Michael Rhodes will appear before a South African Rugby Union judicial committee on Thursday.

This follows a charge of having made a dangerous tackle in the Currie Cup Final against the Sharks in Cape Town in October, last year.

The disciplinary hearing was initially set to take place in the week following the match, but had to be rescheduled twice, resulting in a postponement until January.

Rhodes was cited for a dangerous tackle in the second half of the Currie Cup Final - when he placed his arm around Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis' neck in a maul and maintained his grip.

This was in breach of law 10.4 (e) relating to dangerous tackling.

The hearing will take place in Cape Town on Thursday.

Donny Jacobs will serve as the judicial officer.
