One-game ban for WP’s Rhodes

2013-09-18 00:00

CAPE Town — Western Province flank Michael Rhodes was yesterday suspended for one match, for stamping on Blue Bulls captain Jono Ross in a Currie Cup clash on Saturday.

Rhodes received a red card in the 35th minute and appeared before Saru. Judicial officer Peter Ingwersen ruled that although there was no intent by Rhodes, as he was being tackled and tried to regain balance, there was sufficient negligence to find he transgressed Law 10.4 (b) on stamping. It was deemed a lower-entry offence, and combined with Rhodes’s good disciplinary record, resulted in a suspension for one match — against Griquas on Friday.
