Hines to face judicial officer

Lions lock Nathan Hines has been cited for a dangerous tackle in the match against the Emerging Springboks at Newlands on Tuesday.

Citing commissioner Steve Hinds of New Zealand alleged that Hines breached Law 10.4 (e) in the ninth minute of the match by lifting his opposite number, Wilhelm Steenkamp, in a tackle above the perpendicular and dropped him to the ground.

Hines will appear before Judicial Officer Alan Hudson of Canada on Wednesday at the offices of the Western Province Rugby Union in Newlands.
