Dangerous tackling includes, but is not limited to, tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders.’The Sanzaar foul-play review committee on Monday confirmed that it has accepted a guilty plea from Swinton and that he has been suspended from all forms of the game for four weeks, up to and including Saturday, 6 February 2021.This means that Swinton will miss the rest of the Tri-Nations tournament, with the Wallabies still set to face Argentina twice on 21 November and 5 December.In his finding, committee chairman Adam Casselden SC ruled the following:‘Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, including submissions from his legal representative, Maryjane Crabtree, the Foul Play Review Committee upheld the Red Card under Law 9.13.‘With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of six weeks due to the World Rugby instructions that dictate any incident of foul play involving contact with the head must start at a mid-range level.‘However, taking into account mitigating factors including the fact the Player has pleaded guilty at the first available opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to four weeks. The Player was not entitled to a full 50% reduction due to the presence of two prior offences on his record.‘The player is therefore suspended for 4 weeks, up to and including Saturday 6 February 2021.’Meanwhile, All Blacks prop Ofa Tu’ungafasi, who was also red-carded for a similar tackle, will appear at a Sanzaar judicial committee hearing to be held by video conference on Tuesday, 10 November.Photo: Chris Hyde/Getty Images ‘ SumabisThis Is What Happens To Your Body If You Sleep With Socks OnSumabis|SponsoredSponsoredUndo 熱門話題不要被酵素騙了!在萬寧賣的「這個」直接針對脂肪…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndocenter_img Published on November 9, 2020 ‘  739  35 From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVSA Rugby MagUndo ‘ Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby Magazine takes a look at five players who have only represented South Africa once but might do so again in the future.SA Rugby MagUndoCNAHow is life for Cambodian boy linguist after viral fame?CNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoBuzzAura16 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every DayBuzzAura|SponsoredSponsoredUndo熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLoans | Search AdsLooking for loan in Hong Kong?
