The Bulls’ stand-in captain, veteran Springbok lock Bakkies Botha, has been cited – following his team’s 10-38 loss to the Stormers at Newlands at the weekend.
Botha has been cited for an incident in which he cleaned out a ruck and collided with Stormers wing Gio Aplon.
Citing Commissioner Freek Burger cited Botha under Law 10.4 (h) for dangerously and recklessly entering a ruck without using his arms or grasping a player.
Botha made contact with the Stormers wing, Aplon, in the second minute of the match. Aplon required treatment on the field as a result.
Botha will appear before a SANZAR judicial hearing in Pretoria on Monday.
