Reds prop James Slipper free to face Stormers

Reds prop James Slipper was on Monday cleared on a charge of dangerous play after appearing before a SANZAR Judicial hearing at Newlands in Cape Town.

Slipper had been cited for an alleged breach of Foul Play Law 10.4 (j) that relates to lifting an opponent off the ground and dropping or driving him into the ground whilst his feet are still in the air.

The incident occurred in the sixth minute of the match.

The Judicial Officer, Advocate Rob Stelzner after careful consideration of the video evidence, the referee’s report, the citing commissioner’s report, Slipper’s testimony and submissions by his legal representative, Stefan Weyers, concluded that he was not satisfied on the balance of probability that Slipper’s action was in breach of Law 10.4 (j).

The case was accordingly dismissed and Slipper is free to face the Stormers this weekend.
