Tigers wing Nick Malouf receives ban following home victory vs Wasps.
Malouf pleaded guilty to the charge and was given a suspension of three weeks for a dangerous tackle on Wasps’ Christian Wade. The incident occurred in the 20th minute of the match between Leicester Tigers and Wasps on Sunday 25 March 2018.. He is free to play again on 17 April 2018.
This period of suspension includes an A-league fixture on 1 April, which the panel determined was meaningful having heard evidence from the club, as well as two Premiership league fixtures.
Panel chair John Brennan said: "The player accepted that he had committed an act of foul play which passed the red card test.
"The panel found that the player had struck the Wasps player's head. This required a mid-range entry point in accordance with the sanction table.
"Given the player's guilty plea and his clean disciplinary record the panel allowed full mitigation of 50%. He was suspended for a period of three weeks.”
