South Africans not happy with lack of SBW citing

Sonny Bill Williams failure to be cited after yesterday's Super Rugby match against the Sharks in London has hit the headlines in South Africa.

The Crusaders midfielder escaped punishment for a high shoulder tackle on Sharks number eight Ryan Kankowski at Twickenham.

The issue of consistency has again been thrown up by the South African media after the Bulls lock Bakkies Botha was cited but not penalised a week earlier for alleged dangerous play.

Sanzar's citing commissioner decided not to cite Williams because it wasn't a red card offence.
