The Bulls may yet be a further man down as they embark on their “tour of hell” of the Anitpodes tomorrow. While winger Bjorn Basson looks likely to miss the trip after a serious ankle injury against the Force on Saturday, it has emerged that hooker Chiliboy Ralepelle has further been cited after his conduct in that match.
Ralepelle is alleged to have charged into a ruck illegally, making contact with Force winger Alfi Mafi without using his arms. According to SuperSport, the citing commissioner has deemed that the incident warranted a red card, although no on-field action was taken by the referee.
Ralepelle will attend a hearing at 15h30 today and if found guilty, could well be suspended for enough of the tour to make it pointless for him to travel. The Bulls play the Blues, Crusaders, Reds and Brumbies over the next four weeks.Tweet
