RFU Disciplinary: Billy Vunipola and Vereniki Goneva

BILLY VUNIPOLA (Saracens) will appear before an RFU Disciplinary Panel tomorrow (April 14) after being cited following the Aviva Premiership Rugby Round 19 match against Leicester Tigers at Allianz Park.

The panel of Philip Evans (chair), Bonike Erinle and Martyn Wood will sit at a London venue and review the offence of striking Mathew Tait with the head, contrary to Law 10.4 (a), or, in the alternative, charging into a ruck, contrary to Law 10.4 (h).

The case of Leicester Tigers’ Vereniki Goneva, cited for striking Saracens’ Kelly Brown with his forearm, will be dealt with by the chair via papers only, in agreement with the club and without the player present.
