Tino Mavesere receives 3 game suspension

The Disciplinary process related to Tino Mavesere Red Card in the BKT United Rugby Championship Round 17 game against Cardiff Rugby on Saturday May 18 has resulted in a three game suspension.

After an act of foul play by Hollywoodbets Sharks player No 6 (Tino Mavesere), referee Frank Murphy showed the Player a Red Card in the 19th 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 (Ms. Rose Alice Murphy), he had accepted that he had committed an act of foul play which warranted a Red Card. Ms. Murphy found that the incident met the Red Card threshold, with entry of mid-range warranting six weeks. The Player received three weeks (50%) mitigation due to his good record and apology which results in a three game suspension.

Should the Player complete the World Rugby Coaching Intervention Programme then the sanction will be reduced by one week.
