Botha cited

5:59 am on 17 May 2010

The Bulls lock Bakkies Botha has been cited for charging into a ruck during his team's Super 14 match against the Stormers at Newlands yesterday morning.

The Citing Commissioner has cited Botha for dangerously and recklessly entering a ruck without using his arms or grasping a player.

Botha made contact with Stormers right wing Gio Aplon in the second minute of the match. Aplon required treatment on the field as a result.

The Stormers won the match, 38-10 to secure second place.

Botha will attend a judicial hearing in Pretoria tonight.
