Ireland loose-forward CJ Stander has been suspended for one week after he was shown a red card in the first Test between South Africa and Ireland on Saturday, 11 June at Newlands in Cape Town.

The matter was heard by the Judicial Officer Terry Willis of Australia on Sunday 12 and Monday 13 June.

After hearing the evidence and submissions made by Gerrie Swart, representative of the player, the Judicial Officer was not satisfied on the balance of probability that the referee, Mathieu Raynal of France, was wrong when he issued the red card to the player.

As a result, the player was suspended for one match and will miss the second Test of the Castle Lager Incoming Series between Ireland and South Africa, scheduled for Saturday 18 June in Johannesburg, whereafter he is free to play again.
