PUBLISHED: April 20, 2014

Michael Rhodes of the DHL Stormers has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (j) Lifting Tackle during Saturday’s 18-3 Vodacom Super Rugby win over the Lions.

The incident occurred in the 27th minute of the match between the DHL Stormers and Lions played at DHL Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday, April 19 (2014).

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.
