Cape Town - Blue Bulls fullback Duncan Matthews will miss his team’s Currie Cup clash against the Free State Cheetahs on Saturday after receiving a one-week suspension for a dangerous tackle.

Matthews was cited for transgressing Law 10.4 (e) in the Blue Bulls’ match against DHL Western Province in Cape Town last Saturday, which the Pretoria side lost 45-34.

Matthews had dived on Seabelo Senatla after the WP winger had scored in the corner.

The disciplinary hearing took place on Tuesday morning.
