The incredible episode happened during the Women’s Rugby World Cup and involves an Italian player. She will miss the quarter-final against France in Whangarei on Saturday but is hoping for a “miracle”. appeal result will be known in a few days. Italian national team second row Sarai is struggling. Tounesi. The former Colorno, the 2018 Italian champion, has gone abroad. After his time in France, he is playing in England.
The current Sale Sharks player has 25 games against Italy and has got herself into a lot of trouble. She really got a maxi disqualification. It all took place last week in the match against Japan. Italy won easily 21-8, but the joy of coach Andrea Di Giandomenico at the end of the match was great. Qualification for the quarter-finals was marred by an infamous episode that threatened to jeopardise the situation. THE Tounesi was summoned by an independent judicial commission for a serious offence, namely being accused of biting an opponent.
Rugby, a heavy burden for the Italian national team
As Sky reports, the commission is chaired by Christopher Quinlan Brenda Heather-Latu (Samoa) and former international Ofisa Tonu’u (New Zealand). All the evidence was taken into account to disqualify the Italian player. The note reads as follows measures. In fact, the incident was only discovered after the match and verified by video footage. The Commission therefore considered that Tounesi had bitten his opponent. An action that should have cost the red card. The opponents’ quotation is therefore confirmed.
After an initial success of 18 matches, the Commission decided to suspend the player for 12 matches, taking into account some mitigating circumstances. This is obviously a very serious problem for the player and for the Italian national team. They will now have to employ Giordano Duca and Valerio Fedighi in this role. However, there is hope of an appeal. Meanwhile, next on October 29, Italy will play a match against France at the Northland Events Center without one of their most important players.
