Disciplinary Update – Rob Herring

Rob Herring, the Ulster hooker, appeared today before an independent PRO12 Rugby Disciplinary Committee, having been cited by an independent Citing Commissioner for allegedly stamping on an opponent’s head (Law 10.4(b)) in the Guinness PRO12 match against Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun on Saturday May 16th. 

The Disciplinary Committee, chaired by Roger Morris, along with Nicholas D Jones and Ray Wilton (all from Wales), having viewed the footage of the incident, reviewed the other evidence and listened to representations by and on behalf of Mr Herring, did not uphold the citing complaint. 

The Disciplinary Committee concluded that the player had ( Steam Tower game ) been held in a ruck by two opponents after the ball had left the ruck, that his actions were the result of him trying to release himself from their grip and that he had not committed an act of foul play.

The Disciplinary Committee accordingly imposed no sanction on the player, who is free to resume playing immediately.
