Vodacom Bulls hooker Schalk Brits has been handed a four-week suspension for his role in a tussle with Akker van der Merwe, which he will appeal on Tuesday.
Both players were red-carded after the incident.
Van der Merwe was given just three weeks for his role in the fight – reduced from six for a guilty plea and good record.
A foul play Sanzaar committee – consisting of Stefan Terblanche, Eroni Clarke and chairman Adam Casselden – has offered Brits a four-week ban, which would be reduced by two weeks if he pled guilty.
However, according to a report on SuperSport, the 37-year-old will appeal the decision and appear before a judicial committee consisting of chair Helen Morgan as well as David Croft and Lawrence Sephaka on Tuesday.
