The 4 much talked about suspensions from the latest round of Super Rugby

first_imgThursday May 31, 2018 The 4 much talked about suspensions from the latest round of Super Rugby Ahead of the weekend, here’s a quick recap of what happened in the last round of Super Rugby, with four much talked about suspensions for various elements of foul play. We’ve thrown them into one video for you, and given a brief recap of the bans handed out. The Stormers vs Lions game featured a number of interesting calls, the biggest of which was winger Raymond Rhule’s red card for a dangerous challenge on Ruan Combrinck.Raymond Rhule – 3 week suspensionIt looked harsh, as Rhule had jumped up and had to come down. But when it came down to it, he was reckless and his shoulder did make contact with the Lions winger’s chin.Rhule was cited and later pleaded guilty to contravening Law 9.25: A player must not intentionally charge or obstruct an opponent who has just kicked the ball. In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following: “With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks, especially given that that act resulted in a blow to the opposing player’s head. However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player’s excellent Judicial record, his good character and his early guilty plea at the first available opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 3 weeks.”JJ Engelbrecht – 1 week suspensionIn the same match, JJ Engelbrecht received a yellow card for a dangerous, lifting tackle. Later in the match he was penalised for a (maybe two?) dangerous clean out at the breakdown, so was issued a citing commissioner’s warning. SANZAAR Disciplinary Rule 6.1 states:“6.1: If a Player has received two Warnings or a combination of a Warning and a Yellow Card during a match, he shall be treated for disciplinary purposes as if he has been sent off.”Englebrecht has been suspended from all forms of the game for 1 week, up to and including 2 June 2018.Ruan Botha – 4 week suspensionIn the Jaguares vs Sharks game, second rower Ruan Botha was issued a straight red card for a dangerous charge into a ruck. He was cited for contravening Law 9.12: Striking with hand or arm.Botha has been suspended from all forms of the game for 4 weeks, up to and including 23 June 2018. “With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid range entry point of 4 weeks due to the contact with the opposing Player’s head.”   “The Foul Play Review Committee added 1 week to the initial sanction as aggravation for the fact the Player was suspended for a similar incident less then 12 months prior. However, taking into account the mitigating factor of the Player’s guilty plea at the first available opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 4 weeks,” the hearing ruled.Folau Faainga’a – 1 week suspensionIn the head butting incident that we featured here earlier in the week, Brumbies hooker Folau Faainga’a was red carded for getting up close and personal with Bulls replacement forward Matthys Basson, who was making his Super Rugby debut.Faainga’a dived ‘into the pool’ then got up and a scuffle ensued, with the Brumbies man getting face to face with Basson, where forehead made contact with nose.A straight red card was issued, and he was later suspended for one week.credit: sanzaarADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In addition, they can schedule tasks to remind them of the next steps, including the prompts for pledges relating to the gift.The Donorfy platform has been designed to give charities instant access to their database, campaign management and stewardship programmes on desktop, tablet and smartphone. It also automatically collects Gift Aid, and is integrated with other commonly used cloud services including MailChimp, JustGiving, GoCardless, Stripe and Eventbrite.Donorfy CEO Robin Fisk said:“We find that charities, especially small and medium-sized ones, are increasingly looking to major funders for strategic support, be they high-net-worth individuals or a grant-making body of some kind. Which is understandable given the concerns charities feel they may have with individual giving programmes in the future. That meant we needed to think about providing the kind of opportunity management features found in commercial CRM systems, but in a way that works well for charities.”  110 total views,  1 views today Advertisementlast_img read more
