Cheetahs winger Ryno Benjamin has been suspended for two weeks by a SANZAR disciplinary committee.

The former Bok Sevens ace was red-carded during Saturday’s match between the Cheetahs and the Rebels in Bloemfontein for head-butting Wallaby centre Stirling Mortlock. Can’t say too many Saffers could honestly admit that they don’t secretly want to buy Benjamin a beer for that, given the torture that Mortlock has inflicted on South Africa fans with his superb play for the Brumbies and the Wallabies over a decade-long career!

That said, though, it’s still illegal to do that sort of thing and Benjamin was probably quite fortunate to escape with only two weeks off. He’ll miss his side’s upcoming games against the Bulls and the Sharks as a result.

  • 2 weeks for a head butt seems a bit light?

    Very light isn’t it?

    Was it intentional though?

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 5) : Hey Rich, what happened to your avatar. I miss the Dark Side!
    Glad I wasn’t with you on Saturday. Was going to come but went to Golden Gate instead with the fandamily.
    Might look at a last-minute visit this weekend for the Tahs…
    Still considering options! :razz:

    Hey Shaz..

    The Dark side was put on the back burner for now, we have run out of cookies..

    As for the game on Saturday, I sat in the stands for a change in scenery and it didn’t really work out for me, so its back to the better seats for the Tahs game!!

    Let me know if you do come through..

  • @Ice (Comment 20) : Sorry for him, nasty injury. But (sadly, because it comes off someone else’s suffering) better for our prospects in the return match, even though Hougaard is evil… :lol:
