EP Kings centre JP du Plessis will receive no further sanction after an SA Rugby Union hearing on Monday (September 14) following the red card he received in the Absa Currie Cup Premier Division match against the Free State Cheetahs in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, September 12.
The teleconference hearing was presided over by Advocate Vusi Msiwa, with Du Plessis being represented by EP Rugby chief executive officer Charl Crous.
In viewing the incident, Advocate Msiwa ruled that the red card given to Du Plessis in the 46th minute of the match was sufficient punishment for the contravention under law 10.4a. He ruled that no further sanction was necessary, which means Du Plessis will be available for selection for the Kings’ match against the Pumas in Nelspruit on Friday 18 September.
