Bulls lock cleared to play in Super 14 semi

6:57 am on 19 May 2009

The Bulls lock Bakkies Botha has been cleared to play in this weekend's Super 14 semi-final against The Crusaders in Pretoria.

Botha was cited for striking the Sharks player Ryan Kankowski last weekend, but the judicial officer at his hearing last night ruled that it was a push without any intention to strike, and the incident took place in full view of the referee.
