Kuridrani issued warning for dangerous tackle

Tevita Kuridrani of the Brumbies has been issued with a Citing Commissioner Warning for contravening Law 10.4 (e) Dangerous tackling, during a Super Rugby match at the weekend.

The incident occurred when Kuridrani made contact with Waratahs #10 Kurtley Beale in the 73rd minute of the match between the Brumbies and Waratahs played at GIO Stadium in Canberra on 4 March 2016.

A Citing Commissioner 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.

Upon further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed a Citing Commissioner Warning was appropriate.
