Wiese cleared over dangerous tackle

SANZAAR's Judiciary has cleared Springboks back-rower Jasper Wiese who was charged for a dangerous clean-out on Wallabies centre Samu Kerevi last week.

But Wiese will miss South Africa’s centurion Test against New Zealand this week.

Rugby.com.au reports that Wiese was yellow-carded during the final minutes of Australia's 30-17 win over the world champions for making contact with the head of Kerevi at the ruck.

He was referred to the Judiciary for the incident as SANZAAR's Citing Commissioner 'deemed in his opinion the incident had met the Red Card threshold for foul play.'

The 25-year-old has avoided suspension, who believed the incident warranted only a yellow card issued by referee Matthew Carley as it clean-out 'not a highly dangerous incident.'

This forced coach Jacques Nienaber to leave him out of the side, expressing his frustration with the system.
