Disciplinary Update: Alex Lozowski learns his punishment

Alex Lozowski has been given a two-week ban for two separate incidents in Saracens’ victory over Glasgow Warriors, leaving him fully available for next month’s autumn internationals.

Lozowski was cited by match citing commissioner Tom Lowry for committing “an act of foul play by entering a ruck dangerously” without binding to another player in the 15th minute of the 13-3 victory, which is in contravention of Law 9.20.

On top of that incident, the 25-year-old was also alleged to have committed a dangerous tackle on Glasgow full-back Ruaridh Jackson in the 33rd minute, in contravention of Law 9.13.

The citing over his tackle was thrown out by a disciplinary board in London on Tuesday night, but he was found guilty of dangerously charing into a ruck without binding, which was found to have warranted a red card.


He has been handed a ban of a low-entry point two weeks, which leaves him free to play on 29 October ahead of England’s first autumn international against South Africa on 3 November.

Lozowski’s hearing took place in London on Tuesday evening running into the late hours, with EPCR releasing the verdict on Wednesday morning as a result.
