Argentina's Bosch to miss Ireland clash in RWC

Marcelo Bosch will miss Argentina's Rugby World Cup quarter final against Ireland in Cardiff after he was suspended for one week for a dangerous tackle.

Bosch was given a one week ban for a dangerous tackle which was contrary to Law 10.4(e).

Following a review of all camera angles, Bosch was cited by independent Citing Commissioner Peter Larter (England) under Law 10.4(e) for a dangerous tackle in the Rugby World Cup 2015 Pool C match against Namibia at Leicester City Stadium on 11 October.

Bosch admitted committing an act of foul play.

Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles and additional evidence, including from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Chris Smith of Lewis Silkin, the Judicial Officer Jean-Noel Couraud (France) upheld the citing on the basis that the player had committed an act of foul play contrary to Law 10.4(e).

With respect to the sanction, the Judicial Officer deemed the act of foul play merited a low-end entry point of two weeks. However, taking into account mitigating factors including his conduct prior to and at the hearing, his remorse, good character and clean disciplinary record, the Judicial Officer reduced the suspension to a period of one week.

The suspension takes effect immediately and will run up to and include 18 October, 2015. He is free to resume playing on 19 October, 2015. Bosch will therefore miss Argentina's quarter-final against Ireland.

Bosch has 48 hours in which to appeal from receipt of the written decision.
