RaboDirect PRO12 Disciplinary Update

Guinness PRO12 Editor

7 Mar 2012

Manoa Vosawai, the Benetton Treviso back row forward, appeared at an independent RaboDirect PRO12 disciplinary hearing today, having accumulated three yellow cards in this year’s competition to date.

The Disciplinary Committee, chaired by Robert Williams, assisted by Russell Howell and Roger Morris (all Wales), having listened to the player's explanation of the three yellow cards, imposed a suspension of one week.

In deciding to impose a suspension, the Committee noted that all three yellow cards had been given for technical offences following general warnings by the referee but also noted the player’s previous record for similar offences.

Manoa Vosawai is eligible to resume playing at midnight on Wednesday 14 March 2012.
