Smit cleared to play in Rustenburg

John Smit will captain the Springboks in Rustenburg on Saturday after a judiciary cleared him of foul play.

Smit and All Blacks lock Ali Williams were cited for punching in the All Blacks 45-26 hammering of the Boks in Pretoria. Both appeared before a judiciary on Sunday and even though Williams was found guilty of punching, he was given a warning and cleared to play the Boks on Saturday.

Smit was also given the all-clear.
