Reds lock James Horwill has been issued an off-field yellow card for contravening Law 10.4 (b) Stamping or Trampling during Saturday's clash with the Western Force in Perth.

Horwill made contact with Force prop Pek Cowan at a breakdown with his feet. The incident occurred in the third minute of the match.

An off-field yellow card may be issued by the SANZAR citing commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.

In the Reds skipper's case the referee for the match did not act upon the incident. Upon further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed an off-Field yellow card was appropriate.
