Club statement following appeal hearing

Figure image
After an independent appeal hearing on Monday evening amended the suspension of director of rugby Richard Cockerill from match day coaching to run from August 24 to October 18 and include pre-season friendlies against Jersey and Ulster, Leicester Tigers issued the following statement:

“We are pleased that the judgement vindicated our decision to appeal and we are grateful to the panel for the consideration that they showed, although we await with interest the written judgement to see why the pre-season game against Montpellier falls into a different category than those against Jersey and Ulster.

“We remain disappointed with the RFU’s conduct in this matter but, as we have previously stated, this is a matter we shall pursue privately.

“The focus now is on the remainder of our pre-season and our preparations for the start of the new season.”
