Disciplinary update: Sonny Bill Williams

An appeal by New Zealand centre Sonny Bill Williams (pictured above) against the matches which an independent disciplinary committee counted towards his four-week suspension following his red card for dangerous charging contrary to Law 10.4(g) during the second New Zealand versus British and Irish Lions test in Wellington on 1 July has been heard.

The hearing took place on 1 August and was heard by an independent appeal committee chaired by Mr Justice Graeme Mew (Canada) along with Shao-Ing Wang (Singapore) and Stefan Terblanche (South Africa).

The panel reserved judgement in the case. The decision will be made and communicated in due course.
