Bismarck decision delayed
The judgement following the disciplinary hearing of Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis’ on Monday has been reserved until Tuesday.
Du Plessis appeared before a SARU judicial committee in Cape Town after he was cited for allegedly stamping on Free State Cheetahs flank Pieter Labuschagne in their Currie Cup semi-final at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday, which contravened Law 10.4 (b). The Law states that a player must not stamp on or trample an opponent.
The player received a yellow card in the 65th minute following the incident.
Advocate André Oosthuizen, who was appointed the judicial officer, on Monday reserved his judgement until Tuesday.
