The charge against Schalk Brits of Saracens for punching or striking contrary to Law 10.4(a), was heard last night.
Brits was sent off by referee Craig Maxwell-Keys in the first half of last weekend’s Aviva Premiership match between Saracens and Gloucester for punching Nick Wood. The player pleaded guilty and is suspended for three weeks. He is free to play again on 15 March 2016.
The panel was chaired by Dr Julian Morris with Martyn Wood and Paula Carter.
