Jake Ball evades citing for contact with Faf de Klerk


Scarlets lock Jake Ball has not been named within the citing commissioner’s report from the Welsh area’s Problem Cup loss to Sale Sharks.

Ball smashed into Sale scrum-half Faf de Klerk at a ruck early within the second half and led to the South African complaining to the contact official about foul play.

The shoulder of the Wales worldwide related with the pinnacle of de Klerk after the ball was deemed to be out by referee Mathieu Raynal.

No motion was taken on the time, with the TMO and Raynal not specializing in the sort out itself and as an alternative taking a look at whether or not the ball had spilled out of the ruck.

The incident didn’t have an effect on the sport, with Sale ultimately working out 57-14 victors to maneuver into the Champions Cup quarter-finals, but it surely as soon as once more raises questions over the consistency in officiating.
