SA latest – Benjamin faces suspension

Keo.co.za brings you news from South Africa’s Super Rugby franchises.

Benjamin faces suspension – Cheetahs wing Ryno Benjamin will attend a Sanzar judicial hearing on Monday after being red-carded in Saturday’s match in Bloemfontein.

Benjamin received a red card in the 75th minute of the match against the Rebels for allegedly hitting centre Stirling Mortlock with his head. The judiciary will make its decision on Monday, but given that head-butting warrants heavy sentences, Benjamin is unlikely to feature again in the Cheetahs’ 2011 campaign.
