Good news on this Monday morning…

Advocate Jannie Lubbe has taken just an hour to quash the bogus citing of Sharks centre Francois Steyn.

Here is Lubbe’s ruling:

“The evidence of Steyn was supported by the video evidence. Further, the incident happened right in front of the match referee who awarded a Penalty Kick to the Sharks. The legal representative of the Sharks: Mr Gerrie Swart made helpful submissions and took the Judicial Officer through the available video evidence to support the version of Steyn that he did not act in breach of Law 10.4 (h).

Having carefully considered the available evidence and the submissions of Mr Swart, Lubbe concluded that it was not possible on the balance of probability that Steyn acted in breach of Law 10.4 (h). Mr [Adam] Magro concurred with the conclusion. As a result the citing is dismissed.”
