Caroline Boujard receives 2 week suspension

Caroline Boujard receives 2 week suspension

An independent Disciplinary Committee decided that France Woman replacement winger, Caroline Boujard, will receive a 2 week ban following her dangerous tackle against England last weekend.

Ms Boujard accepted that she had committed an act of foul play which was worthy of a red card, and claimed that the action had been reckless rather than deliberate.


The Committee categorised the offence as low end, which usually carries a four-week suspension as per World Rugby's sanction table.

It was also determined by the Committee that there were no aggravating factors and the player mitigating factors permitted and therefore a reduced 2-week ban was decided.


Boujard is suspended until mid-night on Sunday 26 February and is eligible to play on Monday 27 February
