Sykes, Greeff off the hook

EP Kings lock Steven Sykes and Griquas No 8 Carel Greeff can be considered for Currie Cup action this weekend.

This follows the outcomes of their Saru judicial hearings on Wednesday.

Sykes received two yellow cards in their clash against the Pumas last Friday in Port Elizabeth. He was yellow carded in the 35th minute for charging into a ruck and tackling a Pumas player dangerously above the shoulders and also issued with an off-field yellow card for alleged foul play. Judicial officer Robert Stelzner ruled that the two yellow cards were sufficient and that no further sanction should be imposed on the player.

Greeff was cited for a dangerous tackle in the match against the Free State Cheetahs last Friday in Kimberley. The citing was not upheld and Greeff can therefore play this weekend.
