Jamie Cudmore gets 40 day ban for punch on Gregory Le Corvec

Jamie Cudmore gets 40 day ban for punch on Gregory Le Corvec

Serial offender Jamie Cudmore has been handed a 40 day ban after being cited for his latest offence against Perpignan in their Top 14 game a few weeks back. He had just made a return from suspension.

Cudmore struck Perpignan forward Gregory Le Corvec on the ground in what looks like somewhat of a cheapshot, possibly based on the history between the two players. Le Corvec was suspended last season after tampering with Cudmores eyes.

The big Canadian second rower has been temporarily suspended since the incident, so by the time his ban comes to an end, he will have missed five matches in total for Clermont. Hes only played in nine Top 14 games this season. Hes spending more time off the pitch than on it these days, as the game against Perpignan was his return after being out for 70 days following a stamp.

His disciplinary record is accumulating and the next time he so much as steps out of line, you can be sure that the resultant suspension will be far heavier than one that would match the crime.

According to Planetrugby , since joining Clermont in 2003 hes picked up 21 yellow cards and 3 red cards. That doesn't include citings and suspensions. Surely at this stage Clermont must be wondering if at the age of 32, he's becoming a liability.
