This past weekend seems to have been less eventful than the previous in terms of citings, but there was one for Blue Bulls flank Derick Kuun following an altercation for Sharks hooker Bismarck du Plessis in the Currie Cup semi final in Durban.
The game started late thanks to the infamous Beegate debacle , but it didnt lack any sting as the rain came down and things got quite heated in the second half.
As youll see in the clip, Du Plessis whos never far from the action tried to get the ball back from Kuun after being awarded a penalty, but things got out of hand with Kuun striking out at the fiery Bok hooker.
Whether it was in fact a punch or an open hand push remains to be seen as the cameras didnt pick it up very well. It seemed to hit the spot though as Du Plessis got that delayed reaction then ended up on the floor.
Kuun has since been cited for foul play under law 10.4 (a) for striking. He was due to appear in front of a SARU judiciary committee earlier today, but thats now been postponed till Friday for an unknown reason.
