    Jaguares prop cops ban

    2016-05-30 08:16

    Cape Town - Jaguares prop Ramiro Herrera has been banned for two weeks for foul play during his side's clash with the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth.

    The SANZAAR duty judicial officer Michael Heron has accepted a guilty plea from Herrera for contravening Law 10.4 (h) - A player must not charge into a ruck or maul - after he was red carded during the Super Rugby Match at the weekend.

    Herrera charged into an opponent on the ground and made contact with his opponent's head during the match which the Kings won 29-22.

    Herrera received a sanction of one week (covering one scheduled match) with his next scheduled match being Argentina v Italy on June 11.

    Consequently he is suspended up to and including, Saturday, June 11, 2016.

    In his finding, Heron ruled the following:  

    "The player, Mr Stephan Weyers (counsel), Mr Greg Peters (Jaguares CEO), Mr Rafael Laria (Jaguares Manager) and an interpreter attended the call.  Mr Andreas Ramos, SAANZAR JO, attended also as an observer.

    "The player accepted the charge. I agreed with Mr Weyers that the charge should be under Law 10(4)(h) as the opponent player did not have the ball. The player was remorseful and apologised to the opponent player on field before he left as a result of the red card.

    "I accepted the submission that this was low end offending, it was not intentional, no injury resulted and the only negative impact on the game was to the Jaguares and Mr Herrara.  Mr Herrara has an exemplary disciplinary record, this being his first red card or citing.

    "For that reason, I indicated a low end entry point under 10(4)(h) of two weeks.  Because of his conduct, his remorse and his exemplary playing record, I was prepared to reduce that by one week to a resulting suspension of one week (covering one match) and I gave that indication.

    "The next scheduled fixture for the player was an international match on 11 June for Argentina against Italy.  Accordingly, the suspension imposed is for one match (being that international match on 11 June) but takes effect from today up to and including 11 June 2016 (to include the one scheduled match)."
