Springbok hooker Bismarck du Plessis will appear before a SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer after being shown a red card in the defeat to the All Blacks.
Du Plessis received two yellow cards for separate incidents in the 29-15 defeat at Eden Park on Saturday, and will have his case considered in the first instance by SANZAR Duty Judicial Officer Adam Casselden.
His first yellow card came in the 17th minute when a tackle on All Blacks flyhalf Dan Carter was deemed dangerous by referee Romain Poite, and the second came in the 47th minute for leading with his arm and hitting Liam Messam in a tackle.
Carter, who has been ruled out for six weeks with a shoulder injury, tweeted after the game: “Nothing wrong with the tackle. Fell awkwardly and popped my AC joint #gutted #smashedembro.”
All SANZAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to a Duty Judicial Officer hearing to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.
For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the DJO.
