Adam Hastings suspended after that ugly boot to the face

BY Grant Constable  ·  Thursday Mar 4, 2021

Adam Hastings of Glasgow Warriors has been banned as a result of his red card in the Guinness PRO14 Round 13 fixture with Leinster on Sunday, February 28, 2021.

The Player was shown a red card by Referee Frank Murphy (IRFU) under Law 9.11 Players must not do anything that is reckless or dangerous to others.

The Disciplinary Process of the red card offence was presided over by Judicial Officer Owain Rhys James (WRU), who concluded that an act of foul play had occurred. The incident was found to merit a mid-range entry point, which indicates a six-week suspension for this offence.

The Judicial Officer determined that there were mitigating factors, including the player’s acceptance of the foul play, immediate and genuine remorse, cooperation with the disciplinary proceedings and clear disciplinary record, which under the disciplinary rules warranted a reduction in the sanction of 50 percent.

Hastings is suspended from participating in the next 3 meaningful matches. Should a game be postponed or cancelled during this window of games, the player and PRO14 are to submit updated fixtures to the Judicial Officer so the return date can be advised.

He is free to play from midnight on Sunday 21st March 2021 and this sanction ensures he will be unavailable for three games (listed below) and can face Dragons in Round 16. The ban also covers a game the Player could have been selected for on the weekend of March 12/13/14 when both Glasgow Warriors and Scotland have fixtures.

  • Guinness PRO14 R14 Glasgow Warriors v Zebre Rugby Club
  • Guinness PRO14 R15 Glasgow Warriors v Ospreys Rugby (and the Scotland v Ireland Six Nations fixture)
