Brennan’s appeal heard

Ireland and Toulouse lock Trevor Brennan had his appeal against his misconduct verdict from an ERC disciplinary committee heard on Friday in Dublin.

Brennan had been found guilty of misconduct, fined EUR 25,000 plus costs, and ordered to pay EUR 5,000 compensation plus costs to Ulster fan Patrick Bamford, after climbing into the stands and punching Mr. Bamford during the Ulster v Toulouse Heineken Cup match in January.

Brennan was also given a lifetime ban from rugby.

Brennan claimed to have been provoked by chants from Mr. Bamford, an accusation which the fan repeatedly denies.

The decision of the appeal committee, comprising Wyn Williams QC (Wales, chairman) and also comprising Robert Horner (England) and Sheriff Bill Dunlop (Scotland), will deliver a verdict on June 11.
