Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club Gloucester Rugby could be faced with a sanction from the Rugby Football Union (RFU) after being called into a hearing for fielding an ineligible player.
The Cherry and Whites went ahead with the selection of Mariano Galarza to face the Sale Sharks in March for an Aviva Premiership match despite the player not holding an effective registration. The signing of the 28 year old lock from Argentina was confirmed by the club in February.
The London Welsh were similarly fined £ 15,000 and deducted five points from their total for fielding the ineligible Tyson Keats in a Premiership clash in 2013 and much of the same is expected to be done with Gloucester.
According to reports, the player returned from a long term injury layoff against the Sale Sharks but an oversight of the administration meant that he was not yet registered as a player for Gloucester Rugby in the Premiership. The club has also apparently admitted to the breach and has, so far, been open about the process altogether. He has since been registered correctly by the club and even faced the Exeter Chiefs in the club’s European Challenge Cup semi final victory. Read more »
Kieran Davies, the young rugby football union star who had been under dual registration with the Aviva Premiership Rugby Football Union club the Exeter Chiefs and the Rugby Football Union Championship club the Cornish Pirates has announced that he will be leaving Sandy Park at the end of the current season to join RFU Championship club Nottingham RFC in the summer.
The 21 year old was selected in the first team by the Chiefs for two matches this season, both in the LV=Cup and he will join the Nottingham club with hooker Shaun Malton moving the other way from Nottingham RFC to Exeter.
Davies also made seven appearances for the Pirates in the RFU Championship this term with the first of those outings coming off the bench against his new employers Nottingham RFC earlier this season. He began his first full match for the Pirates in their 45-38 win over Bristol Rugby, ending their 12 match unbeaten run.
Speaking of his move to Nottingham RFC, the former Exeter Chiefs said that he is really excited about the move. He added that it is a great club with lofty ambitions and he believes he will be going to a great club to face a new challenge which will help his develop into a better player. Read more »
