Hala’ufia to face RFU hearing

Date published: May 4 2015

London Welsh back row Chris Hala'ufia will appear at a RFU disciplinary hearing on Wednesday following his red card at Leicester Tigers last month.

The 36-year-old received his marching orders following a head high tackle on Laurence Pearce in the April 25 Aviva Premiership clash, at Welford Road, which the home side won 38-17.

Hala'ufia – who has played in 25 Tests for Tonga – was sent off after taking out a streaker with a big hit earlier on in the match.

The disciplinary panel, chaired by Antony Davies, will sit at the London Bloomsbury Holiday Inn.
