Hurricanes pair punished

Jason Eaton and Tristan Moran have copped off-field yellow cards for foul play in Friday’s match against the Lions.

According to Sanzar, Eaton stamped on a Lions player and the incident was not acted on by referee Steve Walsh. On further review of the match footage the citing commissioner deemed an off-field yellow card was appropriate.

Moran has been issued with an off-field yellow card for dangerous tackling. The Hurricanes prop came into contact late and dangerously with Lions No 10 Elton Jantjies in the first half. Walsh did award a penalty to the Lions, but the citing commissioner decided to take things a step further by issuing a yellow card.
