Dominic Robertson-McCoy Banned For Six Weeks

Connacht prop Dominic Robertson-McCoy has been banned from action for six weeks after a vicious stamp on Leinster’s Josh van der Flier on Saturday.

The rather ugly incident happened during the second-half of his Connacht side’s losing matchup against Leinster over the weekend.

A disciplinary panel met in Edinburgh to discuss the rather ugly incident and determined that a six-week ban for the 24-year-old would be sufficient Рgiven the severity of the crime.

Given his clean past record and his remorse, they also concluded that a 50% mitigation should be applied.

He will be cleared to return on Sunday, November 18.
