Scotland’s Hogg banned for 3 weeks

March 19, 2014

LONDON (AP) — Scotland fullback Stuart Hogg has been suspended for three weeks for his high and late tackle on Wales flyhalf Dan Biggar in the Six Nations.

A tournament disciplinary committee made the ruling after a hearing on Wednesday.

Hogg was sent off for the offence midway through the first half, a big reason for Scotland’s 51-3 loss in Cardiff on Saturday.

The committee decided the tackle was worthy of a five-week suspension, but took two weeks off because of Hogg’s remorse on the day. The Glasgow back was suspended through April 6.
