Valentine let off

Force scrumhalf Josh Valentine has been cleared of a dangerous tackle on Fourie du Preez and will face the Stormers.

Valentine was cited for an offence on the Bok No 9 in the first half of the Bulls’ 32-29 victory over the Force. Judicial officer Jannie Lubbe viewed the video evidence put forward and decided to dismiss the case.

Valentine will now be able continue his flourishing halfback partnership with Matt Giteau as the Australians hope to remain in the play-off race in their clash at Newlands on Saturday.
