Highlanders 20-26 Crusaders (Australia only)

Hayden Triggs, Owen Franks and Kane Hames will all front SANZAR judiciary hearings this week to answer striking charges.

Franks and Hames were charged following separate incidents in Saturday night's Highlanders-Crusaders clash in Dunedin while Triggs was sent off in the Blues' 27-16 loss to the Stormers in Cape Town.

Triggs is alleged to have punched Stormers captain Duane Vermeulen which, after consultation with his assistants, referee Craig Joubert deemed was worthy of a red card. While neither Franks nor Hames were sent-off, the citing commissioner later deemed both incidents to have met the threshold for a red card.

All three cases will be heard in the coming days.
