Treeby incident 'met red card threshold'
NEWS: Stormers centre Shaun Treeby has been cited for alleged foul play during his team's 30-22 win over the Blues at Newlands on Friday.
Treeby is alleged to have contravened Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent during the match in Cape Town.
Blues flyhalf Piers Francis had to be replaced after Treeby's high swinging arm hit his head.
Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the red card threshold for foul play.
The case is to be considered in the first instance by the SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee which will take place on Sunday via video-conference.
Blues wing Matt Duffie is also in trouble for his discipline in the same match.
Duffie received two yellow cards during the match. If a player receives two yellow cards in a match, the player is awarded a red card.
Duffie's case will also be heard on Sunday.
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.
