Pumas flank off the hook
- 29 Aug 2013
Argentina flank Pablo Matera has been found not guilty of eye gouging Francois Louw in Mendoza.
The incident occurred in the 45th minute of the match.
After hearing the evidence of an eye specialist, Dr Michael Delaney, and Louw and Matera's version of events, the judicial officer, Terry Willis, was not satisfied on the balance of probabilities that there was contact with the eyes or eye gouging such as to constitute a breach of the laws.
The citing complaint was dismissed.
Pumas No 8 Leonardo Senatore was also cited for allegedly biting Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth. The verdict on his case is still pending.
