Chance Peni-Ataera suspended for 3 weeks for shoulder shot

Western Force winger Chance Peni-Ataera has been suspended for three weeks after a dangerous tackle agaisnt Melbourne Rebels at the weekend. He accepted a guilty plea aafter it was found that he contravened Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent.

In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following: "With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of 6 weeks.

"However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player's youth and inexperience in rugby, his clear Judicial record and the fact he pleaded guilty at the earliest available opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to 3 weeks."

The challenge looked fairly similar to that of Sonny Bill Williams on Anthony Watson recently. On that occasion Williams was red carded, and received a four week ban.
