NEWS: Edinburgh's Fraser McKenzie has been banned for a period of two weeks after a Disciplinary Committee found that had committed an act of foul play against Munster.

McKenzie was banned under Law 10.4(h) (k) – Charging into a Ruck and Dangerous Play.

Although the Disciplinary Committee deemed that the player had not acted deliberately, his actions were judged to be reckless. Under the Law 10.4(h) (k) it was deemed that the player's act of foul play was a Lower End offence which has a sanction entry point of two weeks. The player will be free to play from October 10, 2016.

The incident occurred in the game between Munster and Edinburgh on September 24 at Thomond Park Stadium, Limerick, Ireland.

The Disciplinary Committee comprised of Roger Morris (the chair), Aurwell Morgan and Ray Wilton (all WRU).

The Hearing took place in Cardiff, Wales on September 28 between the committee, the player, a managerial representative and a legal representative for Edinburgh Rugby/Scottish Rugby Union.
