An independent Disciplinary Committee convened on Friday, 9 February 2007 to consider preliminary matters raised by Trevor Brennan’s representatives concerning the Misconduct complaint, against Mr. Brennan.

The Misconduct compliant arises from the Round 6 Heineken Cup Pool 5 match against Ulster Rugby at Stade Ernest Wallon on Sunday, 21 January.

Following an application by Mr. Brennan’s representatives for further time to prepare and present their arguments on these preliminary matters, the Independent Disciplinary Committee agreed to adjourn until Monday, 26 February 2007, when the preliminary matters will be considered.

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