Sharks captain gets a warning
Botha is alleged to contravened Law 9.12 – A player must not physically abuse anyone.
The incident occurred in the 58th minute of the match between the Sharks and Highlanders played at Jonsson Kings Park in Durban.
Botha escaped without any on-field punishment.
And upon further review of the match footage, the SANZAAR foul play review committee issued him with just a warning.
A Warning may be issued by the SANZAAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the Red Card threshold for citings.
