Engels slapped with two match ban

Bulls prop Jaco Engels has been banned for three weeks, meaning he misses the Bulls’ next two matches in the Vodacom Super 14.

Engels received the punishment in a hearing following the ill-tempered victory over the Waratahs. Rocky Elsom and Matt Dunning received four and one week bans respectively for their parts in the fracas.

The timing of the Bulls bye means that Engels will only miss two games, with Wessel Roux being the likely replacement.

Flanker Johan Wasserman was handed a two week ban, meaning he misses a solitary match.
