Xerox Lions flank Trevor Hall, Vodacom Blue Bulls lock Flip van der Merwe and SWD Eagles centre Sinethemba Zweni will appear before SARU judicial committees on Tuesday after being cited for foul play during their Absa Currie Cup games this weekend.
Van der Merwe was cited under law 10.4 (a) for punching or striking an opponent. The Vodacom Blue Bulls lock punched the Xerox Lions hooker Martin Bezuidenhout in the face with his left fist during the third minute of the game. The Vodacom Blue Bulls defeated the Xerox Lions 32-18.
Hall was cited under law 10.4 (m) for acts contrary to good sportsmanship. The Xerox Lions flanker was on top of the Vodacom Blue Bulls No 4 Van der Merwe during the 81st minute of the match and with his open hands made contact in his face, near the eye area.
Zweni was cited for contravening law 10.4 (j) for lifting an unidentified Griffons player from the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground. The incident occurred in the 19th minute of the game. The SWD Eagles defeated the Griffons 18-14 in this Absa Currie Cup First Division match.
The judicial hearings of all three players will take place on Tuesday at the Johannesburg Stadium from 09h30.
