The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
These acts have no place in a game that has at its core the pillars of fair play, respect and camaraderie.
The IRB has also written to the Chairman of the IRB Judicial Panel to underscore its concerns regarding all incidents of eye gouging and a memorandum will be issued to all Independent Judicial Officers reinforcing the IRB's disciplinary policy.
Under existing IRB Disciplinary Regulations, only the player may appeal independent judicial decisions.
In light of recent cases, the IRB will review whether the scope of the appeal should in the future extend to other appropriate parties, including the IRB itself.
The IRB works tirelessly with all 116 Member Unions and key stakeholders to ensure that the safety of players and the reputation of the game is protected.
