Pablo Matera free to play against Lions

Pablo Matera free to play against Lions

Jaguares captain Pablo Matera will be available for the Super Rugby quarter-final clash against Lions after his appeal was accepted by the disciplinary tribunal.

Head coach Mario Ledesma, the Manager Lucas Chiocarelli, along with Jaime Barba witnessed the teleconference in the South Africa where the team argued the defence of the Argentine captain who had a positive outcome.

"A Judicial Committee Hearing has found Pablo Matera of the Jaguares guilty of contravening Law 9.20(i): Dangerous play in a ruck or maul, after he was cited during a Super Rugby match at the weekend, but decided the offending would not have warranted a Red Card," confirmed an official statement from SANZAAR.

"No sanction has been imposed on the player and he is free to play."

Matera had received a sanction from SANZAAR that ruled him out of action for two weeks following his shoulder charge on Ruan Botha in the 18th minute of the clash against the Sharks.
