Scotland’s Zander Fagerson will miss the rest of the Six Nations after being handed a four-match ban following his red card against Wales. An independent disciplinary committee has deemed the foul play warranted a six-week suspension but has reduced that by two weeks to account for mitigating factors, including the player’s admission of foul play and a good disciplinary record.
“Poor comments from me, emotions were very high after losing a very tight match. Players’ health is paramount.” Fagerson said after the match.
Skipper Stuart Hogg has vowed there will be no repeat of the ill-discipline that cost Scotland against Wales. “It’s little things that are costing us. But the pleasing thing is we know exactly where we’re going wrong – there’s been times in the past where we’ve made mistakes and keep making them, whereas now I believe that’s a one-off in our ill-discipline.” Hogg said. “We’ll be much better prepared for the France game in two weeks in terms of our discipline and we’ll get excited for that challenge.”
