Frans Steyn has been found not guilty following a citing over the weekend.

Steyn was cited by the match commissioner for charging into a ruck in the 78th minute where he made contact with Chiefs player, Nanai-Williams.

Following a review of the evidence, Jannie Lubbe, who conducted the hearing Steyn did not breach Law 10.4 (h) with reference to foul play.

Steyn will therefore be available for selection this weekend when the Sharks tackle the Highlanders.

    And the ARU would be making discreet enquiries with Mossad about contracts they could be taking out and would there be an interest..

    Frans reading himself for playing prop.

    Odd since I saw Chief players punching and their hooker dropping his shoulder in the ruck at least 3 times.

    Don’t scrum in your own half.
    Scrums have become a lottery.
    The only certainty is that the
    ball will be put in under the
    feet of the lock without as
    much as a warning.
    Why not just scrap this law?

    Boertjie, me thinks they have allowed scrums to become a mess, so that the likes of the ozmob etc can finally have their wish of no scrums. Currently scrums are so frustrating, that sooner or later we will get so gatvol that the IRB ‘helps’ us out of our frustration and takes away scrums, which will be awefull.

    But hey, seeing as it is more important these days to be entertaining than to win, might as well take scrums away as well. Rugby purists are a dying breed apparently and scrums are just not that attractive to the rest. Hell before you know it, we’ll have T20 type matches with the 15 man game becoming a 20min free for all where forward passes are the order of the day and rucks and mauls get replaced by freekicks.
