Jasper Wiese to miss summer tests following giant ban

BY Jack Tunney  ·  Thursday May 23, 2024

Leicester and Springbok forward Jasper Wiese has found himself lumped with a six-match suspension after he forced Exeter player Ross Vintcent head first into the ground at the weekend.

The case sadly ended the 28-year-old’s Leicester career on a sour note, with Wiese now expected to head on to Japan next season.

A statement from the Rugby Football Union read:

“The case of Jasper Wiese, Leicester Tigers, was heard by an independent disciplinary panel chaired by Jeremy Summers sitting with Martyn Wood and Olly Kohn.

“He was shown a red card for lifting another player off the ground and dropping or driving that player so that their head and/or upper body makes contact with the ground, contrary to World Rugby Law 9.18, during a game against Exeter Chiefs on 18 May 2024.

“The player admitted the charge and received a six-match ban.”

Wiese will miss the following games:
22.06 South Africa v Wales (Twickenham) *
06.07 South Africa v Ireland (Pretoria)
13.07 South Africa v Ireland (Durban)
20.07 South Africa v Portugal (Bloemfontein) +
10.08 Australia v South Africa
17.08 Australia v South Africa ‘
