Pieter Scholtz of Isuzu Southern Kings faced a Disciplinary Hearing today via video conference and has been banned for four weeks.

A Disciplinary Panel convened in Neath to consider the red-card decision against Scholtz resulting from the Round 10 Guinness PRO14 fixture against Edinburgh Rugby on Saturday, January 4, 2020.

The player was shown a red card by referee Joy Neville under Law 9.11 – A player must not do anything that is reckless or dangerous to others. 

The Disciplinary Panel, comprising of Rhian Williams (Chair), Simon Thomas and Nigel Williams (all Wales) concluded that there was an act of foul play which merited a mid-range entry point due to contact with the neck / head area of his opponent. The Player’s previous record and behaviour during the process were considered and mitigation of 40% was applied.

As a result, the Player has been banned for a period of four weeks. He is free to play from midnight on Sunday 16th February 2020.

The Player was reminded of his right to appeal.
