NEWS: The Bulls' Renaldo Bothma pleaded guilty to his charge of contravening Law 10.4(e) dangerous tackling of an opponent, after he was red carded against the Sunwolves, thus seeing him being handed a four-week suspension.

The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee accepted the guilty plea and handed down the suspension from all forms of the game up to and including Saturday, April 15.

Bothma made contact with the head of Sunwolves player Ed Quirk.

The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee of Nigel Hampton QC (Chairman), Stefan Terblanche and Stephen Hardy assessed the case. In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following:

"Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, including from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Adrian Montzinger, the Foul Play Review Committee upheld the red-carding of the player under Law 10.4(e) dangerous tackling of an opponent.
 
"With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of six weeks.

"However, taking into account mitigating factors including the player's early admission of guilt and his remorse for his actions, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension by two weeks."

"The player is therefore suspended for 4 weeks, up to and including Saturday, April 15."

All SANZAAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to the Foul Play Review Committee to provide the option of expediting the judicial process. For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the Foul Play Review Committee.
