Former Zebre head coach Christian Gajan has been handed a suspended six-month suspension from all rugby.

Former Zebre head coach Christian Gajan has been handed a suspended six-month suspension from all rugby.

The ruling follows a meeting of an independent Pro12 Disciplinary Committee in Dublin on Wednesday relating to Gajan's behaviour towards match officials during and after Zebre's defeat to Munster on May 3.

The independent Disciplinary Committee, chaired by David Martin (Ireland) along with Pamela Woodman (Scotland) and Simon Thomas (Wales), found that Gajan had verbally abused the match officials after the match, and accordingly upheld the misconduct complaint.

The independent Disciplinary Committee considered Gajan’s previous disciplinary record and previous cases of a similar nature, and heard evidence of Gajan’s personal circumstances.

The Disciplinary Committee banned Gajan from participating in Rugby Union in any capacity anywhere in the world for a period of six months.

However, the independent Disciplinary Committee suspended the sanction for a period of two years, so that it will not be imposed unless and until Gajan is found guilty of misconduct again in that period.

Gajan has the right of appeal.
