Wilson suspended without pay

Date published: February 4 2015

Scotland’s Ryan Wilson has been suspended without pay, from training with and playing for Glasgow Warriors for a period of three months.

A disciplinary panel made up of three members of the Scottish Rugby Board met with Wilson on Wednesday to consider the employment implications arising from the court case in Glasgow which concluded on January 27th.

Along with his suspension, which starts immediately, Wilson will also undertake a programme organised through Glasgow Warriors and Scottish Rugby to support his personal development around the factors which contributed to the original conviction.

In accordance with Scottish Rugby’s standard disciplinary procedures Ryan Wilson has the right to appeal against the panel’s findings.

The panel had been separately delegated by the Scottish Rugby Board to consider the implications of the case for Wilson’s future with the Scotland national team.

It was decided Ryan Wilson will not be invited to play for the Scotland national team until August 23, 2015.

This date is ahead of the third match of the 2015 World Cup warm up series following matches against Ireland and Italy on August 15th and August 22nd respectively. He will be permitted, if invited, to train with the Scotland squad only after the 2015 Six Nations has concluded.

Wilson was formally charged with assault on January 29 after an incident in a kebab shop with Glasgow Hawks captain Ally Maclay.
