It did say, about the suspended 12 week ban that it would come into effect if a similar offence occur, could Diamond suggest that it was not similar? just hoping.
If the RFU go with the president set when they charged Budge Poutney, when he was at Northampton Saint about 5+ years ago, then the sentence would possible be 12 week touchline ban, with no contact with the players on matchday. Add on to the the suspended 12 week ban = 24 week ban.
