South African internationals Bjorn Basson and Chiliboy Ralepelle will face a judicial committee in Cape Town later this month after testing positive for a banned stimulant.

A three-man panel, appointed by the South African Rugby Union, will investigate after the Bulls duo produced positive tests for the prohibited stimulant methylhexaneamine.

The tests came after South Africa's narrow win against Ireland in Dublin in November.

Basson and Ralepelle were subsequently sent home from the tour and were provisionally suspended from all rugby activities under International Rugby Board regulations until the case is resolved.

The hearing will be held on January 25.
