Peterson banned following red card at Saracens

Thursday 02 March 2023 Written by: Adam

The USA lock was sent off 17 minutes into Saturday’s 29-23 loss at Gallagher Premiership leaders Saracens.

His case was heard by an independent disciplinary panel chaired by Matthew Weaver KC, with Leon Lloyd and Alastair Campbell.

Peterson received a red card for dangerous tackling contrary to World Rugby Law 9.13, accepted foul play and received a three-match ban. This will be reduced to two weeks if he completes the World Rugby Coaching Intervention Programme.

Peterson will miss the following games:

March 5 – v London Irish

March 11 – v Exeter Chiefs

March 18 – v Ayrshire Bulls *(Removed on successful completion of World Rugby Coaching Intervention Programme)*
