Keegan Daniel in hot water

Sharks flanker Keegan Daniel – who many feel was robbed of the man of the match award in Saturday’s Super Rugby win over the Brumbies – has been cited for a dangerous tackle and will attend a SANZAR disciplinary hearing in Durban today.

The 26-year-old loose forward, who made his Springbok debut last year and is in the reckoning to make the South African World Cup squad, stands accused of contravening law 10.4 (e) in committing a late and dangerous hit against Brumbies inside centre Christian Lealiifano in the 71st minute of Saturday’s game, which the Sharks won 34-16. The offence was not picked up by the referee and also didn’t appear to be shown on the regular broadcast footage, since no evidence of it seems to have yet come into the public domain. I do recall hearing the commentators say something about the incident shortly after it happened, though, so presumably there must be grounds on which the hearing may proceed.

Should Daniel be suspended, it would stretch the Sharks’ loose forward reserves somewhat, given that both Ryan Kankowski and Jacques Botes are currently battling injury. Mitigating this somewhat is the promising form that 20-year-old Marcell Coetzee showed in his brief Super Rugby debut late in the game.

In other disciplinary news, Hurricanes scrumhalf Tyson Keats has been found guilty of a tip tackle and suspended for four weeks.
