Bulls lock banned
- 09 Jul 2013
Bulls lock Wilhelm Steenkamp has been found guilty of foul play and suspended for two weeks.
Steenkamp was cited for striking Sharks flyhalf Butch James with his head in last Saturday's game in Pretoria. A Sanzar judiciary found him guilty of the offence and handed down a sentence that will exclude him from this week's match against the Stormers.
After considering the video evidence, the judiciary declared that Steenkamp's actions were more reckless than intentional.

Springbok scrumhalf Ruan Pienaar has been in excellent form for Ulster, writes PAUL MORGAN.
Sharks must bank bonus point
The Sharks have a great opportunity this Saturday to bag maximum points and keep the pressure on the Waratahs and Chiefs, writes JON CARDINELLI.
Cheetahs failed as a unit
A lack of defensive intensity in the first 40 minutes cost the Cheetahs any chance of victory against a Reds team low on confidence after the hammering against the Waratahs, writes MARK KEOHANE.
