A Springbok prop and a Wallaby flank were both cited for dangerous play following Saturday’s Tri-Nations match between South Africa and Australia in Durban.
CJ Van der Linde was spotted diving head-first into Aussie scrumhalf Sam Cordingley in a dangerous attempt to clear him from a ruck.
Rugby 365 reports that the Bok prop was penalised by New Zealand referee Lyndon Bray for the offense, but received no yellow card after the offence occurred eight minutes into the match.
Rocky Elsom also faces a SANZAR Disciplinary Committee hearing after being cited by Citing Commissioner Steve Hinds of New Zealand for tackling the jumper (Victor Matfield) in the air, four minutes after the half-time interval.
Both men will appear before judicial officer Nick Davidson QC (New Zealand) at the offices of the KwaZulu-Natal Rugby Union at 09.00 local time on Monday.Tweet
