Date set for England star's hearing after red card against Argentina

DISCIPLINARY NEWS: England loose forward Tom Curry will appear before an independent Judicial Committee after he received a red card in his team’s World Cup opener against Argentina in Marseille on Saturday.


French referee Mathieu Raynal first handed Curry a yellow card in just the third minute following a clumsy clash of heads with Argentine fullback Juan Cruz Mallia, but that was eventually upgraded to red under the Foul Play Review System.

The red card was England’s fourth since March and the openside became the first England player to be sent off at a World Cup.

At the player’s request, the hearing will take place on Tuesday, September 12.

The independent Judicial Committee that will hear the matter will be chaired by Adam Casselden (Australia), joined by former players John Langford (Australia) and Jamie Corsi (Wales).
