Pieter-Steph du Toit issued with off-field yellow

 Sharks lock Pieter-Steph du Toit has been issued with an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

Second rower Du Toit made contact above the line of the shoulders of Highlanders player Jarrad Hoeata at a maul.

The incident occurred in the 51st minute of the match between the Highlanders and Sharks played at Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin on Saturday 4th May.

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 act upon the incident by penalising the player for his actions.

Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an Off-Field Yellow Card was appropriate.
