Review of Disciplinary Process RE: Toutai Havea (Harlequins)
Following a request from Hobart Harlequins Rugby Union Club to Rugby AU to undertake an independent review of the disciplinary case involving Mr. Havea, Rugby AU appointed a Judicial Officer to review the process and sanction imposed.
The review has been completed and the Tasmanian Rugby Union and the Club have been provided with the decision. The Judicial Officer has determined that the sanction imposed on Appeal be set aside and that a sanction of 9-weeks be imposed for the on-field foul play. Therefore, Mr. Havea is eligible to return to play and a decision will be made by his Club, following discussions with him, on when that may be appropriate.
