The independent Disciplinary Committee hearing has been postponed following an application by the player’s representatives for an injunction to delay the hearing.

The independent Disciplinary Committee hearing, scheduled to hear the Misconduct complaint against Toulouse player Trevor Brennan in Dublin tomorrow (Thursday, 1 February, 2007), has been postponed following an application by the player’s representatives for an injunction to delay the hearing.

The player was due to answer a Misconduct complaint arising from the Round 6 Heineken Cup Pool 5 match against Ulster Rugby at Stade Ernest Wallon on Sunday, 21 January.

The complaint, under the Heineken Cup 2006 / 2007 Disciplinary Rules, is that he allegedly entered one of the seating areas of the stadium and assaulted a spectator during the Toulouse and Ulster Rugby match.
