Lud­low could face ban af­ter Wasps cit­ing

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORTING INDEX -

» GLOUCES­TER flanker Lewis Lud­low could be fac­ing a ban af­ter be­ing cited for stamp­ing or tram­pling.

He was due to ap­pear be­fore an in­de­pen­dent dis­ci­plinary panel last night (Wed­nes­day) for the in­ci­dent that oc­curred dur­ing Glouces­ter’s Premier­ship win over Wasps at the Ri­coh Arena.

Video footage shows Lud­low’s studs make con­tact with Eng­land in­ter­na­tional El­liot Daly’s head at a ruck, which was fol­lowed by a scuf­fle.

He has been cited con­trary to law 9.12 that says a player must not phys­i­cally abuse any­one by stamp­ing or tram­pling.

The low-end en­try point for such an of­fence is two weeks but an act of four play which re­sults in con­tact with the head re­sults in at least a mid-range sanc­tion, which car­ries a pun­ish­ment of at least a six-week sus­pen­sion.

Lud­low has started all six of Glouces­ter’s games so far this sea­son but if found guilty he would not be avail­able for the up­com­ing Cham­pi­ons Cup games against Castres and Mun­ster.

Wasps and Eng­land num­ber eight Nathan Hughes has also been cited for punch­ing or strik­ing Lud­low con­trary to Law 9.12.
