Mathewson gets one-week suspension

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

PERTH - Western Force halfback Alby Mathewson has escaped serious punishment for stamping during an 18-15 Super Rugby win over the Chiefs, receiving a one-week suspension that covers his team's seventh-round bye.

SANZAR duty judicial officer Adam Casselden handed down the ban on Sunday for the former Hurricanes and Blues player's third-minute stamp on Chiefs forward Sam Cane in Perth.

Casselden noted that the recommended entry point ban for the offence is two weeks, which would have ruled him out of the April 5 meeting with the Reds at Suncorp Stadium.

"(But) based on the acceptance of the indicated sanction, the player's excellent disciplinary and playing record and in recognition of his early plea, a discount from the lower end entry point to a one week suspension was imposed," Casselden said.
