Frans not guilty


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.
