WATCH: Jasper Wiese cited for Kerevi clear out shocker
He only received a yellow card at the time but Springbok Jasper Wiese could now find himself on the sidelines after a SANZAAR review into the end of the Wallabies vs Springboks match in Brisbane.
The review found that Wiese’ illegal clear out of Samu Kerevi in the 78th minute met the threshold for a red card rather than a yellow.
“Wiese is alleged to have contravened Law 9.12: a player must not physically abuse anyone, during the match between Australia and South Africa at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on 18 September 2021,” The SANZAAR statement read.
“The referee for the match, Matthew Carley, issued a Yellow Card for the incident which occurred in the 78th minute.
“Upon further review of the match footage, the Citing Commissioner deemed in his opinion the incident had met the Red Card threshold for foul play.
“Following initial consideration by the SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee, Wiese will appear at a SANZAAR Judicial Committee Hearing.
The initial on-field review took the best part of five minutes with the referee and TMO looking closely at two particular angles.
