RFU Disciplinary update: Rob Horne
The charges against Northampton Saints Rob Horne were heard on papers. The player received two yellow cards – Law 10.4(m) – in the match Worcester Warriors v Northampton Saints on Saturday 18 November 2017.
Horne was given two yellow cards for dangerous tackles in each half of the match which resulted in the referee issuing a red card following the second offence.
Horne did not challenge either yellow card and consented to the matter being dealt with on papers.
The sanction table set out at Appendix 1 to RFU Regulation 19 determines that the sanction for two yellow cards (where both are for acts of foul play) is a one week suspension from playing.
The player is free to play again on 26 November 2017.
