An independent Disciplinary Committee will hear a citing complaint against Danny Grewcock, the Bath Rugby lock, on Friday, 8 June.

This is as a result of a citing from the European Challenge Cup final against ASM Clermont Auvergne at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday, 19 May, 2007.

The independent Disciplinary Committee will be chaired by Professor Lorne Crerar (Scotland) and will also comprise Dr Barry O’Driscoll (Ireland) and Richard McGhee (Scotland).


The citing lodged by the Citing Commissioner for the match, Achille Reali (Italy), is for allegedly punching / striking the ASM Clermont Auvergne No 5 Thibault Privat in contravention of Law 10.4 (a).


Law 10.4 (a) – Punching or striking: A player must not strike an opponent with the fist or arm, including the elbow, shoulder, head or knee(s).
