Because of the 26-year-“relatively unblemished” disciplinary record and his “remorse” and “contrition” over the transgression, the suspension was reduced from the customary six weeks, according to Six Nations Rugby.
The tournament’s organizers stated:
“Having acknowledged mitigating factors including, the player’s early acceptance of the red card, his remorse and contrition for his offending, his relatively unblemished disciplinary record over a long playing career and his good character and conduct at the hearing, the committee reduced the six-week entry point by three weeks.”
