Disciplinary Verdict: Semesa Rokoduguni

16 February 2022

Semesa Rokoduguni was heard by a virtual independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday 15 February. The panel comprised Gareth Graham (chair) sitting with Mitch Read and Guy Lovgreen.

Rokoduguni received a red card in the second half of the match against Wasps on Saturday 12 February, for dangerous tackling contrary to World Rugby Law 9.13.  He accepted the charge and received a three-match ban.  He is free to play again on 8 March. 

The club indicated its intention to apply to World Rugby to access the Coaching Intervention Programme and the panel gave permission for this request. 

In the event that the application is allowed and the programme completed, the player will only miss two matches and will be free to play against Bristol on 5 March.
