Rey Lee-Lo Banned

The Disciplinary process related to Reynold Lee-Lo's Red Card in the BKT United Rugby Championship Round 10 game against Connacht on Saturday, February 17 has resulted in a four game suspension.

After an act of foul play by Cardiff Rugby player No 13 (Reynold Lee-Lo), referee Andrea Piardi showed the Player a Red Card in the 14th minute of the game under Law 9.13 – A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously. Dangerous tackling includes, but is not limited to, tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the line of the shoulders even if the tackle starts below the line of the shoulders.

In the Player’s responses to the Judicial Officer overseeing the disciplinary process (Mr. Achille Reali), he had accepted that he had committed an act of foul play which warranted a Red Card. Mr. Reali found that the incident met the Red Card threshold, with entry of mid-range warranting six weeks. The Player received an increase of one week for aggravating factors (previous offender of the same Law 9.13) and received three weeks mitigation due to his acceptance of guilt, immediate remorse and apology which will result in a four game suspension.
