The Lions fullback James Kamana has been suspended for three weeks after a SANZAR judicial hearing held in Johannesburg on Tuesday found him guilty of dangerous play.

The hearing, chaired by Advocate Jannie Lubbe (SC), was called after Kamana was cited for a dangerous tackle on Cheetahs centre Robert Ebersohn during a Super Rugby clash in Bloemfontein last weekend. Kamana received a yellow card for the incident, which occurred during the 60th minute of the match.

The hearing found Kamana guilty on the charge of a dangerous tackle under Law 10.4 {j} that relates to lifting an opponent into the air and dropping him into the ground, commonly referred to as a “tip” tackle.

The player, who pleaded guilty to the charge, has the right to appeal.
