A SANZAR Judicial Hearing has found Andries Ferreira of the Cheetahs not guilty of contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling. A player must not tackle an opponent dangerously. A tackle around the neck or head of an opponent is dangerous play, after he was cited during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred in the 76th minute of the match between the Cheetahs and Force at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on 5th May.

The SANZAR Judicial Hearing held via video conference on 8May 2012 was heard by Jannie Lubbe SC.

In his finding, Jannie Lubbe SC ruled the following:

After careful consideration of the limited video evidence available and the testimony of the player, the Judicial Officer concluded that he was not convinced on the balance of probabilities that the player acted in breach of the said law. Accordingly the Citing is dismissed.
