Bakkies Botha cited



Toulon second-row Bakkies Botha has been cited for a shoulder charge on Montpellier wing Yoan Audrin.

The former Springbok lock will face an LNR disciplinary committee on March 5 after taking out Audrin without the ball during Toulon's 51-6 victory over Montpellier at Stade Felix Mayol last weekend.

In a bizarre twist of events, Audrin was shown a yellow card for (involuntarily) clattering into Toulon scrum-half Nicolas Durand in the air after being bumped off course by Botha, whose enormous frame obscured the referee's view.

The match was just Botha's second game back after a long lay-off following surgery on a fractured eye socket.

Meanwhile, Perpignan wing Adrien Planté will also appear before the disciplinary committee following his yellow card for a dangerous tackle on Toulouse wing Yves Donguy.
