The South African Rugby Union will tomorrow answer charges of alleged misconduct at a hearing in Dublin.
SARU were charged by the International Rugby Board after the Springboks wore ‘Justice’ armbands for the third Test against the British and Irish Lions on July 4, in protest at Bakkies Botha's two-week suspension.
Lock Botha was found guilty of a dangerous charge on Adam Jones during the second Test in Pretoria.
Lions prop Jones was left with a dislocated shoulder and ruled out of action for six months.
Botha failed in an attempt to overturn the ban - he had failed to bind onto a team-mate before cleaning out the ruck - sparking the Springboks' protest at Ellis Park.
The independent disciplinary committee will feature two legal experts in Retired Honourable Justice John Hansen (New Zealand) and Judge Guillermo Tragant (Argentina), plus former Australia captain John Eales.
