Scotland’s Wilson banned after conviction for assault

February 4, 2015

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) — Scotland forward Ryan Wilson has been suspended from club duty without pay for three months and told he cannot play for the national team until August following his conviction for assault.

Wilson was found guilty last month of assaulting two men, including a fellow rugby player, on a night out. He was fined.

The Scottish Rugby Union said on Wednesday that the 25-year-old Wilson, who has played nine times for Scotland, cannot play or train with Glasgow Warriors for three months and must undergo a personal development program.

A disciplinary panel also said Wilson will not be invited to play for Scotland until Aug. 23, freeing him to play in the Rugby World Cup. He can take part only in training sessions with the national team after the upcoming Six Nations.
