Faan Rautenbach banned for three weeks for stamp

Faan Rautenbach banned for three weeks for stamp

London Irish prop Faan Rautenbach was cited following a yellow card he received for stamping on the head and shoulder of Munster's David Wallace on the weekend. Earlier today he was found guilty, facing three weeks on the sideline.

Former Springbok Rautenbach was adjudged to have stamped on Wallace during London Irishs 28-14 loss at Thomond Park. He was sent from the field with a yellow card as the incident was spotted right away, but citing commissioner Francois Guers made a complaint against him, leading to todays hearing.

The 34 year old front rower faced the independent disciplinary hearing a few hours ago and after taking into account his clean record and guilty plea, a five week ban was reduced to three by judicial officer Robert Williams.

Under Law 10.4 (b) a player must not stamp or trample an opponent the offence was deemed to have fallen in the Mid Range category, but Rautenbach will sit out for only the Low End punishment. Top end is 9 to 52 weeks.

Florian Fritz was due to apper before the same disciplinary panel. Well update here when we hear more. Feel free to tweet @rugbydump if you hear soon.
