Ospreys to take disciplinary action against Shaun Connor following Dragons fixture
Following an internal review into a second half incident in the Ospreys New Years Eve fixture against the Dragons, where Shaun Connor was seen to have stamped on Dragons Centre Paul Emerick, the Ospreys Outside-Half has been suspended for 7 days. A suspended fine of one week's salary has also been imposed
Comment from Director of Rugby, Kevin Hopkins:
"This was a moment of madness from Shaun and it totally out of character. Although he has an impeccable disciplinary record we cannot accept incidents of this nature from our players and we consider the sanction we have taken against Shaun to be appropriate. We have discussed this with the Dragons, they understand that Shaun regrets what he did and we are confident that we will not see a reoccurrence. Shaun will be writing a letter of apology to both the Dragons and personally to Paul Emerick."
