Fraser Brown non è stato squalificato e potrà giocare il match di sabato contro l’Italia, valido per l’ultima giornata del 6 Nations 2017.

È arrivata, quindi, la buona notizia che un pò tutti auspicavano dalle parti del BT Murrayfield, una note che toglie un pò di pressione sulle spalle di Vern Cotter – nonostante la posizione di tallonatore, tra tutte quelle ‘aperte’ per la sfida agli Azzurri, fosse quella che destava meno preoccupazione.

Quasi certo che il tallonatore dei Glasgow Warriors vestirà la maglia numero 2 sabato, quando la Scozia – kick off 12.30pm – cercherà di chiudere al meglio il proprio Torneo.

Come si legge nel comunicato emesso dal 6 Nations, di cui riporto un estratto qui, “(..) The Disciplinary Committee, chaired by Jean-Philippe Lachaume (France), alongside Rhian Williams (Wales) and David Martin (Ireland), having reviewed footage of the incident and all other evidence, as well as hearing submissions and testimony from the player and his representatives, considered the tackle to have been dangerous, and therefore contrary to Law 10.4(e). The Disciplinary Committee, however, found that the act of foul play would have not have warranted a red card, and so the citing complaint was not upheld and no sanction was imposed. (The Disciplinary Committee also considered whether or not the player, in carrying out the tackle, had infringed Law 10.4(j), but found that not all of the necessary elements for foul play under that law had been present). The player is therefore able to resume playing immediately.”
