The citing complaint against the ASM Clermont Auvergne wing, Naipolioni Nalaga (No 11), arising from the Heineken Cup Round 1 match against Racing Metro 92 on Sunday, 13 October 2013, was upheld at an independent Disciplinary Hearing in Dublin, Thursday, 17 October.
However, it was also decided that the offence did not warrant any further sanction and therefore, Nalaga is free to play in Sunday’s Heineken Cup Pool 4 game against Harlequins at Stade-Marcel Michelin.

but its not his fault the guy throws his head at his legs
Whether the guy was throwing his head at his legs or not, he still breaks stride and raises his knee. It looks deliberate but who knows whether it was and what his intention was when he looks at the tackler, break stride and raises his knee. I’m only saying how it looks.Posted 4 years ago
Got any clips of the Sampson incident a_a? I’ve read that he’s being cited for stamping Danny Care.
not been able to find any, according to my welsh compatriots it look accidental and the yellow was harsh…. so it was pretty bad I reckon!!
Devoto has been cited too, for a head butt as well as a Begles player for punching Louw

Campese wouldnt of had a career if that is a citing offence.
Samson apparently got the ball, I was listening to Brian Moore huffing and puffing about it then saying something along the lines of another angle shows him getting the ball before stamping on Dannys head 😉 he then went quiet on the subject.Posted 4 years ago
No I dont think it was you hunk of burning Irish love 😆
Winger looks a bit like Nigel Walkers attempts to tackle that usually led to a brief spell of unconsciousness and a head ache.
The concussion discussion thing is interesting, a classic example is George Smith in the last Lions test, how was he ever allowed to go back on?Posted 4 years agojambalayaSubscriber
Piece in the Grauniad today on Welsh Regions, I hope they can get it sorted out you’d think with the quality they had they would have two sides challenging for the European Cup. Sounds even more political than English Rugby and that’s saying something. For the avoidance of doubt I’d love to see a the Welsh challenging for European Cup.Posted 4 years ago
NZ have form.
Assault with intent, part one
And then, a moment to shame a nation. A moment to shame a sport. Disgusting.
What annoys me most here is that incidents like this sour what is a superb rugby team, a nation that loves the sport. See also Andy Haden and more. They’re such a good team, they don’t need to be dirty cheating sons of bachelors, but yet they are.Posted 4 years ago
Sorry, DD! I hadn’t seen it for a while either, and felt the same. Vile incident.
He even went on to say that it was it was one of those unfortunate things that happen in rugby.
No, Tana, it was common assault. Nasty, violent assault. Definitely NOT just one of those things.Posted 4 years ago
