Boyne RFC wish to confirm that the citation made by the club on December 13, 2011, arising from the Boyne v Highfield Ulster Bank League match on December 10, has been withdrawn by Boyne.
While Boyne RFC originally believed there was sufficient evidence for the citing of a Highfield player, the club now confirms that in the intervening period a review has taken place of additional evidence, including a high definition video provided by Highfield RFC.
As a result of which Boyne RFC are satisfied that the Highfield player cited did not contribute in any way to the serious eye injury suffered by Boyne player Eoin Collins.
Boyne RFC would like to take this opportunity to apologise to the cited player for the distress and inconvenience which the citation has inevitably caused him and his club.
Boyne RFC would like to take this opportunity to thank the IRFU and the officials of Highfield RFC for the professional manner in which this entire issue has been dealt with.
Boyne RFC and Highfield RFC would like to take this opportunity to wish the injured player, Eoin Collins, well.
