Cheetahs lock Andries Ferreira was cleared by a A SANZAR judicial hearing of dangerous play in the recent clash with the Western Force
Ferreira was cited for an incident in the 76th minute of the Cheetahs’ 17-13 victory for allegedly contravening Law 10.4 (e) dangerous tackling which states that a player must not tackle an opponent dangerously. A tackle around the neck or head of an opponent is considered dangerous play.
The SANZAR judicial hearing held via video conference on May 8 was heard by Jannie Lubbe who said there was no evidence of dangerous play.
“After careful consideration of the limited video evidence available and the testimony of the player, the judicial officer concluded that he was not convinced on the balance of probabilities that the player acted in breach of the said law,”
Accordingly the citing is dismissed.”
