Leicester captain Tom Youngs has been charged with “conduct detrimental to the interests of the union and the game” following last Saturday’s Premiership clash against Bristol.
The Rugby Football Union said Youngs will appear before an independent disciplinary panel online next Thursday.
“The youth are charged with conduct detrimental to the interests of the union and gambling, contrary to Rule 5.12 of the RFU,” said the RFU.
“This charge is for disrespecting the authority of the match official (contrary to World Rugby Law 9.28) following the Leicester Tigers v Bristol Bears on Saturday 5 June 2021. The incident occurred after the full-time whistle.” .
Leicester said Youngs had been removed from the draft for the Tigers’ final game of the Premiership season against the Wasps on Saturday.
“We have made the decision to remove Tom from the national team following the impeachment against him in last weekend’s game against Bristol,” Leicester head coach Steve Borthwick told the club’s official website.
Bristol rugby manager Pat Lam said Wednesday that he is “absolutely over the moon.” The RFU is investigating the end of Saturday’s game at Mattioli Woods Welford Road.
Borthwick accused Lam of lying during a heated disagreement over the touchline in the final stages.
The discussion centered on uncertainty as to whether John Afoa, who had previously been substituted, was fit to return to the field after his Bristol teammate Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro received a late yellow card for repeated team infractions at the scrum. . The RFU information gathering is ongoing.
Lam believes the full context of the dispute has yet to be revealed and is eager for the governing body to hear his side of events following a game that Bristol won 26-23.
“I was hopeful and absolutely over the moon to have received an email (from the RFU) that there is an ongoing investigation, which is fantastic,” Lam said, ahead of Saturday’s regular season finale at home. against the London Irish.
“What it allows is the real context and the whole story.
“I’m very used to people making judgments without the full story, and I look forward to this process happening.”
Afoa’s withdrawal at halftime had been recorded as a tactic, but Lam claimed that the player was injured and therefore could not play again.
The coach then appeared to change his stance and allowed the former All Black to return when referee Ian Tempest informed him that he would have to take out another player as Chaparro joined Bristol leader Jake Kerr in the bin, leading to scrums. incontestable.
Tigers boss Borthwick was recorded on courtside microphones saying, “Pat, you just said I was injured. Don’t lie Pat, don’t lie. Just don’t lie.”
With tensions still high, Afoa helped the leader Bristol to endure a small success, which left them three points above defending champion Exeter with a round of matches before the play-offs.
Players from both teams engaged in a massive fight full time, but have avoided disciplinary action.
