Hobbs hit with yellow card

Blues flyhalf Michael Hobbs was issued with an off-field yellow card for a dangerous tackle following Friday’s match against the Crusaders.

The incident occurred in the 28th minute when Hobbs was penalised for a high hit on a Crusaders player. An off-field yellow card may be issued by the Sanzar citing commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the red card threshold for citings.

In this case the incident was acted on by the referee for the match and on further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.
