Bulls lock Botha not guilty of dangerous play

Bulls lock Botha not guilty of dangerous play

Bulls and Springboks lock Bakkies Botha was cleared of dangerous play on Tuesday after he was cited for a high tackle in the Super 15 loss to South African rivals the Stormers.
Southern hemisphere rugby body SANZAR said Botha was found not guilty by a judicial committee of making a high and dangerous hit on Stormers scrumhalf Dewaldt Duvenage at a ruck in the 24th minute at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday. The defending champion Bulls lost 23-13.
Botha appeared in front of a SANZAR judiciary at Loftus, and was cleared to play against the Lions this weekend.
