Western Force back Cameron Shepherd has been issued with an off-field yellow card for dangerous tackling during a Super Rugby match in Perth.

The incident in which Shepherd contravened Law 10.4 (e) occurred in the 34rd minute of the match between the Western Force and Hurricanes played NIB Stadium on Friday the 9th of March 2012.

An Off-Field Yellow Card may be issued by the SANZAR Citing Commissioner for foul play incidents that are very close to, but in his opinion do not meet the Red Card threshold for Citings.

In this case the incident was not acted on by the referee for the match and on further review of the match footage the Citing Commissioner deemed an Off-Field Yellow Card was appropriate.
