Du Preez is alleged to have contravened 10.4 (j) Lifting Tackle, in an incident which occurred in the 76th minute of the Super Rugby match between the Sharks and Stormers at Growthpoint KINGS PARK in Durban on 13 June 2015.

In both cases the referee for the match, Glen Jackson, issued a yellow card for the incident and 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 citings will be considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Nigel Hampton QC.

All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

For matters to be dispensed with at these hearings, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO.
