Michael Rhodes has been issued with an off-field yellow card for a Lifting Tackle during the Stormers Super Rugby match on Saturday.
The incident occurred in the first half of the match against the Lions at Newlands.
The Stormers discipline was a contentious issue throughout the match with Deon Fourie being given a yellow card for foul play in the first half.
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.
