SUPER RUGBY UPDATE: Western Force wing Chance Peni has been suspended for three weeks for striking a player in his side's 31-22 win over the Rebels on Friday.

Peni has been suspended from all forms of the game up to and including Saturday, July 29.

The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee has accepted a guilty plea from Chance Peni of the Force for contravening Law 10.4(e) Dangerous tackling of an Opponent at the Weekend.

The incident occurred in the 5th minute of the match between the Force and Rebels played at NIB Stadium in Perth on July 7.

The SANZAAR Foul Play Review Committee of Nigel Hampton QC (Chairman), Stephen Hardy and John Langford assessed the case.

In his finding, Foul Play Review Committee Chairman Nigel Hampton QC ruled the following:

"Having conducted a detailed review of all the available evidence, including all camera angles, as well as evidence from the player and submissions from his legal representative, Michael Tudori, the Foul Play Review Committee upheld the citing under Law 10.4(e),"
 
"With respect to sanction the Foul Play Review Committee deemed the act of foul play merited a mid-range entry point of six weeks.

"However, taking into account mitigating factors including the Player's youth and inexperience in rugby, his clear Judicial record and the fact he pleaded guilty at the earliest available opportunity, the Foul Play Review Committee reduced the suspension to three weeks."

"The player is therefore suspended for three weeks, up to and including the Saturday, July 29,"

All SANZAAR disciplinary matters are in the first instance referred to the Foul Play Review Committee to provide the option of expediting the judicial process.

For a matter to be dispensed with at this hearing, the person appearing must plead guilty and accept the penalty offered by the Foul Play Review Committee.
