Mohamed Haouas given three week suspension following Ritchie punch

French prop Mohamed Haouas has been handed a three week ban after being sent off for punching Scotland’s Jamie Ritchie during last weekend’s 6 Nations match at Murrayfield.

The independent Disciplinary Committee took into consideration Haouas’ relative inexperience at international level and his guilty plea following the incident, meaning that he avoided the mid-range entry point sentence of six weeks.

The full Disciplinary Committee statement read as follows:

“The France prop forward, Mohamed Haouas, appeared before an independent Disciplinary Committee in London today. Mr Haouas had received a red card in the match in the Guinness Six Nations Championship between Scotland and France on 8 March 2020 at BT Murrayfield. The red card was issued for an infringement of Law 9.12 (striking) when, in the  36th minute of the match, he struck the Scotland flanker, Jamie Ritchie.

“Mr Haouas accepted that he had committed an act of foul play that warranted a red card.

“The Disciplinary Committee, which comprised Roger Morris (Wales), Leon Lloyd (England) and Lawrence Sephaka (South Africa), heard evidence and submissions from Mr Haouas and his legal counsel, Louis Weston (as well as from Six Nations’ legal representative). The Disciplinary Committee found that Mr Haouas had committed an act of foul play (an infringement of Law 9.12) and that it had warranted a red card.

“Mr Haouas is therefore suspended for three weeks and, given his playing schedule, he is free to resume playing on Tuesday, 14 April 2020. He was reminded of his right of appeal.”
