The RFU communicated the three-week ban on Matías Alemanno for dangerous tackle last weekend in the Premiership match against Bristol.
The second line saw the red one 15 minutes into the first half in what was the defeat of his team by 39 to 7 against one of the candidates to win the title in the England tournament.
At the time of explaining the sanction, he explained: “The Panel understood that Bristol player Steven Luatua completed the match. Additionally, Rory Murray, Bristol Bears Medical Director, confirmed by email that there were no injuries as a result of the red card incident. “
On the other hand, he added that “Gloucester Rugby confirmed on behalf of the player that he accepted the red card. In those presentations that the incident was an error in judgment and that he did not intend to hurt Steven Luatua (SL)”.
Regarding the point of entry, the Club considered a low-end entry point to be appropriate for the following reasons:
1. There was no intention to injure SL
2. SL continued and ended the match.
3. The player immediately apologized to SL and checked that he was okay.
