“Dragged out” – Date set for second Owen Farrell red card hearing following appeal

Next week, there will be a hearing to review the decision regarding the reversal of the red card issued to Owen Farrell, the captain of the England rugby team, during the match against Wales.

Farrell had initially received a yellow card, but the newly implemented ‘bunker’ review system elevated it to a red card due to a high tackle.

Upon reviewing the incident, a disciplinary panel examined the case on Tuesday and identified mitigating factors that led them to overturn the red card decision.

However, World Rugby has chosen to challenge this outcome by appealing against it, emphasizing their commitment to prioritizing player welfare.

Scheduled for Tuesday, August 22, the upcoming hearing will be conducted by a three-person independent judicial committee. Owen Farrell will participate in the hearing through a video conference.

Should World Rugby’s appeal prove successful, Owen Farrell could potentially be absent for a significant portion of England’s World Cup pool stage matches. The team’s campaign is set to commence on September 9th against Argentina.

#5. Dan Biggar (Wales)

Amusingly, Biggar epitomizes the kind of player who manages to invoke strong dislike until he becomes a part of your own team.

Over the course of his career, this fly-half has exhibited a growing penchant for passionately berating referees.

This behavior has reached such heights that Glove39, a renowned online personality and unwavering fan of Scotland, cleverly crafted a video titled ‘birdman.’

In this video, Glove39 humorously mimicked Biggar’s habitual arm-raising expression of frustration directed at officials.
