Griquas wing Jannie Boshoff has been cited for a driving tip tackle on Sharks centre Paul Jordaan.

The incident happened shortly before half time during Friday night’s Currie Cup clash at Kings Park. A decision was taken between the referee and assistant ref who both saw the incident happening in real time and Boshoff was duly yellow-carded. However, TV replay shown immediately after the offence made it pretty clear that it was well within the red card threshold. Why ref Jaco Peyper didn’t ask the TMO to have a look – since that seems to be the default thing for any ref in any situation nowadays – is beyond me.

Citing Officer Deker Govender duly cited the player for an alleged contravention of Law 10.4 (J) and Boshoff will appear before a SARU disciplinary hearing at 6pm today.


  • Just very glad Jordaan was not seriously injured.

  • SA rugby need to sort the whole ref thing, some refs is really bad and nothing is done, even some tmo calls is wrong but nothing is done to them.
