Cheetahs midfielder Dries Swanepoel banned for three weeks - Sports Leo

Toyota Cheetahs midfielder Dries Swanepoel has been given a three-week ban following his red card against Connacht in the PRO14 Rugby Round 4 match in Galway last Saturday.

Swanepoel was given a red card when his attempted clearout at a ruck connected with the head of the opposing player and was given his marching orders by referee Ben Whitehouse.

Swanepoel was charged under Law 9.11 – Players must not do anything reckless or dangerous to others.

The Disciplinary Hearing was handled by Roddy Dunlop QC (Scotland) and it was accepted that the Player’s actions warranted a red card for foul play. The incident was deemed to be a Mid-range offence which carries a six-week suspension.

The player’s immediate acceptance of culpability, his previously clean disciplinary record and remorse is shown, warranted an application of 50 per cent mitigation which brings his ban to three weeks.

The player is free to resume playing from midnight on Sunday, December 1, 2019.
