Figure image

Leicester Tigers winger Jonny May is free to play again after an RFU hearing into his red card against Saracens on Christmas Eve.

May received two yellow cards for two deliberate knock-ons in the Aviva Premiership fixture at Welford Road.

The charges against May were heard on papers by an Independent single Judicial Officer.

The sanction table set out at Appendix 1 to RFU Regulation 19 determines that the sanction for two yellow cards, where both are given for technical offences, is sending off sufficient, and May is free to play again immediately.
