Retallick gets off field yellow card

11:10 am on 8 October 2012

The All Blacks lock Brodie Retallick has been issued with an off-field yellow card for lifting a player in a tackle during Sunday morning's Rugby Championship match in Johannesburg.

Retallick lifted and tipped Springbok Andries Bekker during the tackle.

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.

The All Blacks beat the Springboks 32-16 to complete a clean sweep in the Rugby Championship.
