O’gara gets 10-week ban
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.
