Disciplinary Update: Benetton Treviso Hearing

Guinness PRO12 Editor

29 Feb 2012

At a disciplinary hearing today Gonzalo Garcia, Treviso substitute, appeared before a disciplinary committee chaired by Pat Barriscale (Ireland), George Spotswood (Ireland) and Philip Orr (Ireland), in respect of a citing following the Scarlets v Treviso match on Thursday 23 February.

Mr Garcia admitted that he had committed an act of foul play, in contravention of Law 10.4(j). The disciplinary committee accordingly upheld the citing and imposed a suspension of one week, having deemed that the offence warranted a low entry point. Mr Garcia is free again to play on Monday 5 March.
