Ewels citing dismissed

1 November 2017

Charlie Ewels is free to play with immediate effect after the citing against him was dismissed by an independent disciplinary panel this evening.

Todd Blackadder said: "We're really pleased for Charlie that this citing has been dismissed.

"There was no intent or malice in the tackle, and he can now fully focus on his time with England getting ready for the Autumn Internationals, and we can concentrate on preparing for our Anglo-Welsh Cup game against London Irish on Saturday."

Ewels was cited by Independent Citing Commissioner Paul Hull and charged with making a dangerous tackle on Gloucester’s Henry Trinder contrary to law 10.4(e). The incident occurred in the second half of the match Bath Rugby v Gloucester on Sunday 29th October 2017.

The chairman of the panel Gareth Graham said: “The panel was satisfied that an act of foul play had been committed but concluded that this dangerous tackle did not meet the red card threshold. Accordingly, the citing was dismissed and the player is free to play with immediate effect.”

The independent disciplinary panel comprised of Gareth Graham (chairman) with Daniel White and Jamie Corsi.
