Jannie (sort of) off the hook

Sharks prop Jannie du Plessis has been issued an off-field yellow card for his open-handed slap to the face of Hurricanes loose forward Carl Lowe during yesterday’s game.

An all-in brawl late in the second half saw numerous players getting involved, but unsurprisingly, the only evidence found on review was du Plessis’s strike, notwithstanding a fair few shots going in from a number of players in yellow as well.

The citing officer reviewed the video footage, as directed by the white card shown by ref Glen Jackson at the time of the incident and found that Jannie’s transgression was not deserving of a red card, issuing him yellow instead. The card will be added to the player’s record, but crucially for his team, will not mean any suspension. With the final tour game against the Blues coming up, the Sharks could scarcely afford to lose their most experienced prop.
