Simon Raiwalui suspended for big stiff-arm

Simon Raiwalui suspended for big stiff-arm

Racing Metro lock Simon Raiwalui has been suspended for 30 days for a stiff-arm late challenge that he put in on Castress hooker Aksenti Giorgadze when the two sides met a couple of weeks ago.

The sides actually drew 24-24 on the day, but it was overshadowed by two yellow cards, and this hit by Raiwalui, who actually wasnt one of the two players sent to the sin-bin.

The hit was late, high, and pretty malicious, resulting in Giorgadze having to leave the field with not only a concussion, but a fracture of the tibia and ankle, which happened during his fall.

The former Sale Sharks and Saracens player, Fijian Raiwalui, escaped punishment on the day, but the video told all, with him being cited and later suspended for 30 days.

This transgression is yet another big suspension for Racing Metro, following on from their scrumhalf, Mathieu Lore, being suspended for four months for cannabis use.
