No ban discount for Bok; ruled out of Ireland series

NEWS: World Cup-winning Springbok Jasper Wiese has been slapped with a heavy ban, which rules him out of the Ireland series and the tour to Australia.


Wiese, playing for Leicester Tigers, appeared before a Premiership disciplinary panel chaired by Jeremy Summers – sitting with Martyn Wood and Olly Kohn.

The 28-year-old was shown a red card for lifting another player off the ground and dropping or driving that player so that their head and/or upper body made contact with the ground – contrary to World Rugby Law 9.18 – during a game against Exeter Chiefs last Saturday.

Wiese admitted the charge and received a six-match ban.

However, his spotty disciplinary record meant the panel did not afford him the customary discount.
