Suspension for Jean Kleyn after dangerous challenge clocks Scott Fardy

Munster’s Jean Kleyn has been hit with a suspension following a dangerous clean out against Leinster in the Guinness PRO14 Round 9 fixture last weekend. Leinster won a tight Thomond Park contest 13-10.

Kleyn was cited under Law 9.20 (b) Dangerous play in a ruck or maul. A player must not make contact with an opponent above the line of the shoulders.

“Jean Kleyn in there very aggressively and physically on Scott Fardy,” said one of the commentators at the time.

To his credit, Fardy popped straight up and continued playing.

The Citing was presided over by Judicial Officer, Simon Thomas (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 four-week suspension for this offence.

The Judicial Officer determined that there were mitigating factors, including the player’s acceptance of the foul play, timely remorse and previous clean disciplinary record, which under the disciplinary rules warranted a reduction in the sanction of two weeks.

Kleyn is free to play from Monday, February 15, 2021.
