Bakkies Botha decision deferred

6:00 am on 18 May 2010

A decision in the disciplinary hearing of Bulls rugby lock Bakkies Botha has been deferred until tomorrow.

Botha attended a judicial hearing that lasted for four hours in Pretoria today and afterwards the Judicial Officer, Peter Ingwersen announced he'd give his verdict tomorrow.

Botha was cited for dangerously and recklessly entering a ruck without using his arms or grasping a player in their match against the Stormers on Sunday morning.

The Bulls play the Crusaders in the Super 14 semi-finals in Soweto this weekend.
