Sinclair, Holmes in the dock

WP’s Jebb Sinclair and Tyrone Holmes will appear before a Saru disciplinary hearing on Tuesday.

Both loose forwards were red carded following separate incidents in a Currie Cup match played in Durban on Saturday. Sinclair was sent off for punching in the 53rd minute, while Holmes was later ejected for the same offence.

With a double-suspension looming, WP’s loose forward depth will undergo a further test. Duane Vermeulen is currently with the Springboks while Schalk Burger, Siya Kolisi, Nizaam Carr and Nick Koster are unavailable through injuries.
