Morne gets 1 week ban

Vodacom Blue Bulls player Mornè Steyn has been suspended for one week of rugby after being found guilty by a SARU Judicial Officer on Tuesday.

Steyn was cited for allegedly breaching law, 10.4 (a), which deals with the striking of an opponent with, for instance the arm, following the Vodacom Blue Bulls’ semi-final clash against The Sharks in Durban on Saturday.

Judicial Officer Louis Booyse suspended Steyn from all forms of rugby until 28 October 2012.

Vodacom Blue Bulls player Mornè Mellett was cited for tripping Sharks flyhalf Patrick Lambie, contrary to law 10.4 (d) in the 29th minute of the same match. Booyse found that the yellow card issued was sufficient punishment under the circumstances.

    Useless ban, effectively he is not punished at all – so why cite him?

    It is a bit silly. Make it one game at least, banning him for one week when his team will not play anyway is pathetic.

    It was inevitable. Morne Steyn will miss his suspension too.
