Tigers' England star in hot water
DISCIPLINARY UPDATE: Leicester Tigers and England hooker Tom Youngs is due to appear before a disciplinary panel.
Youngs was shown a red card by referee Tom Foley in the 56th minute of Leicester Tigers’ 20-52 loss to Exeter Chiefs last Saturday.
This was for making contact with Chiefs lock Ollie Atkins’ head in a ruck – contrary to Law 9.20(a): dangerous play in a ruck or maul.
The hearing will take place in London on Wednesday, April 10.
The panel will be chaired by Philip Evans, with Richard Whittam and Chris Skaife.
