Pierre Schoeman has been cited for allegedly biting an opponent during the Bulls’ 28-10 win against the Rebels at Loftus.
Schoeman’s case will be considered by the Sanzaar foul play review disciplinary committee on Monday after being cited under law 9.12 (A), which states ‘a player must not physically or verbally abuse anyone. Physical abuse includes, but is not limited to biting’.
The incident in question occurred in 58th minute of the match at Loftus, but Schoeman escaped sanction at the time due to limited video footage.
However, upon further investigation of the incident, the citing commissioner deemed in his opinion that Schoeman’s transgression met the red-card threshold for foul play.
