Bath Rugby's Mike Williams and Steve Middleton (kit manager) will appear before an independent disciplinary panel tomorrow night (Tuesday 2 November 2021).
Williams was shown a red card by referee Ian Tempest in the 47th minute of the match between Bath Rugby and Wasps on Saturday 30 October 201. This was for dangerous play in a ruck contrary to World Rugby Law 9.20b .
Middleton was charged with conduct prejudicial to the interests of the union and the game, contrary to RFU Rule 5.12, after they were ordered from the field of play by the referee during the same match. This was for comments made towards the referee in the second half.
The independent disciplinary panel will be chaired by Jeremy Summers with Mitch Read and Tony Wheat.
