three weeks

Polota-Nau was given a three-week suspension by the panel and is free to play from October 29. He will miss the Premiership Cup fixture against Northampton and the opening two Gallagher Premiership fixtures against Worcester and Saracens.

Panel chair Richard Whittam QC said: “The player accepted that he had committed an act of foul play in tackling a player high, making contact to the top of his chest/bottom of the neck.

“In accepting the charge, the player acknowledged that the mandatory mid-range entry point would apply.

"The player was entitled to mitigation for his early acceptance of the charge, his clean record over an impressive rugby career, his genuine remorse for the injury caused and his off-field contributions to the local community. The panel allowed the full 50-per-cent reduction resulting in a sanction of three weeks.”

Sorry but what has his impressive community work got to do with the sanction. Just shows how utterly pathetic the disciplinary process is. Nothing against TPN

He does a lot of work for CHAAH RITY.

Is his charity work on behalf of those suffering with head injuries?
