Glasgow second-row Brian Alainu’uese has been suspended for three weeks following a PRO12 disciplinary hearing in Dublin on Wednesday.
The foul play took place in the second-half against a Treviso player under Law 10.4 (h) – A player must not charge into a ruck or maul. Charges include any contact made without use of arms, or without grasping a player.
The panel upheld the citing with a statement saying: “While considering that the severity on this occasion that the offence merited a low-end entry point (two weeks), the panel took into account the player’s previous record for similar offences over the last two months and determined that the appropriate sanction was a suspension of three weeks.
“The player was reminded of his right to appeal.”
Alainu’uese will be free to be play after January 22.
