NEWS: Springbok lock Lodewyk de Jager received a one-match ban after he was found guilty for a dangerous charge in his team's 15-57 loss to the All Blacks in Durban last weekend. 

SANZAAR Duty Judicial Officer Adam Casselden accepted a guilty plea from De Jager for contravening 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 after he was cited during the Rugby Championship match against New Zealand. 

De Jager has been suspended from all forms of the game for one match up to and including Saturday, November 5 - the day the Springboks take on the Barbarians at Wembley Stadium in London.

The incident occurred in the 72nd minute of the encounter in Durban. 

"Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence including submissions from his legal representative, I accepted the player's admission that he had committed an act of foul play contrary to law 10.4(h)," said Casselden.
 
"With respect to sanction, I deemed the act of foul play merited a low-end entry point of two weeks. However, taking into account mitigating factors including the player's early plea and his excellent disciplinary record I reduced the suspension to a period of one week.
 
"The player accepted my indication of sanction of one week and is therefore suspended from all forms of rugby up to and including November 5 when he is next scheduled to play. The player is free to resume playing from November 6, 2016."
