O’gara gets 10-week ban

Irish Examiner - Sport - - CHAMPIONS CUP -

Ro­nan O’G ara has been slapped with a 10-week touch­line ban and a €15,000 fine for re­marks made about Top 14 match of­fi­cials.

O’G ara was fu­ri­ous af­ter watch­ing his Rac­ing side lose 16-9 away to La Rochelle on Oc­to­ber 8. Head coach Lau­rent Labit is al­ready serv­ing a 15-week sus­pen­sion for his post-match com­ments and a dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee has also served O’G ara with a ban.

The former Ire­land out-half is not per­mit­ted pitch­side or in the ref­eree’s dress­ing room un­til N ew Year’s Eve.

The ban only ap­plies to Top 14 games.
