Player: Tom Marshall
Team: Chiefs
Position: Wing
Date of Incident: 21 March 2015
Nature of Offence: 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling, A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously.
Elapsed time in match when offence occurred: 79th minute

Tom Marshall of the Chiefs has been issued with a Citing Commissioner Warning (CCW) for contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous Tackling during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred in the 79th minute of the match between the Sharks and Chiefs at Growthpoint KINGS PARK in Durban on 21 March 2015 when Marshall made contact with Sharks’ No. 9 Cobus Reinach.

In this case the referee for the match, Angus Gardner, acted upon the incident by awarding a penalty following consultation with the Television Match Official. Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed a CCW was appropriate.

A CCW 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.

A player who has received three yellow cards or three CCW (or any combination thereof) in the same Super Rugby competition shall be required to appear before the Duty Judicial Officer appointed for the match during which he last offended.

The Duty Judicial Officer is to consider the circumstances in which each yellow card and/or CCW was imposed and determine whether any further penalty should be imposed on him by reason of his persistent foul play.
