RFU Disciplinary: John Leota & Logoviii Mulipola


The charge against John Leota of Sale Sharks for kicking, contrary to law 10.4(c) was heard last night. The player pleaded guilty.

Leota was given a red card by referee Dean Richards in the second half of the Aviva Premiership match between Sale Sharks and Wasps last weekend.

The Sharks centre was sent from the field after he kicked out at Wasps’ Tom Bristow in retaliation to having his head pushed into the ground. Bristow was shown a yellow card by Richards for his role in the incident.

Leota was given a two week suspension. He is free to play again on April 4 2016.

The charge against Logoviii Mulipola of Leicester Tigers for dangerous tackling, contrary to law 10.4(e) was also heard last night. The player pleaded guilty.

Mulipola was yellow carded by referee JP Doyle following a dangerous tackle on Saracens centre Marcelo Bosch in the first half of the Aviva Premiership match between Tigers and Saracens. The Tigers prop was later cited for the incident.

Mulipola was given a one-week suspension and he is free to play again on March 28 2016.

The panel comprised of Ian Unsworth QC (Chairman), Samantha Hillas and Tony Wheat.
