Harri Millard cleared at disciplinary hearing

Posted by

The citing complaint against Harri Millard has been dismissed after an Independent Disciplinary Hearing on Wednesday.

Cardiff Blues winger Millard was charged with allegedly committing an act of foul play by striking the Rugby Calvisano full back, Kayle Van Zyl, with his foot in the 46th minute of Saturday’s bonus point win at the Pata Stadium.

However, he pleaded not guilty to the charge and was supported by submissions from legal representative Richard Locke, of Hugh James Solicitors, and Cardiff Blues Team Manager Gafyn Cooper.

The panel, made up of Sam Hillas (England), Chairman, Donal Courtney (Ireland) and Yannick Jauzion (France), decided that the alleged act of foul play was in fact accidental and the complaint was therefore dismissed.

Harri Millard is now free to play against Leicester Tigers this weekend, although EPCR do have the right to appeal the decision should they wish.
