Sean O’Brien’s backhand strike on Yannick Nyanga

first_imgTuesday May 3, 2011 Sean O’Brien’s backhand strike on Yannick Nyanga Leinster’s Sean O’Brien should consider himself lucky to avoid a citing following his backhand to the face of Yannick Nyanga during Leinster’s Heineken Cup semi final on Saturday. O’Brien was being held at the back of the scrum by Nyanga as eighthman Louis Picamoles cruised over untouched for a try to Toulouse in the second half of the 32-23 Leinster victory . It’s impossible to say whether the Ireland loose forward, who has been outstanding over the last year, would have made it across and effected a successful tackle or not. There is however no doubting the fact that he was held back, which led to the backhand lash out. Nyanga looked stunned as he fell to the floor before receiving medical attention. He got up after some time, but was substituted for the rest of the game. None of the officials appeared to see it. Fellow Irishman Paul O’Connell received a four week ban when he did the same thing to Jonathan Thomas in December of last year. O’Connell was spotted doing it at the time and picked up a red card, and later the citing and subsequent suspension. There is a 50 hour window for citings to take place, so O’Brien has somehow avoided being picked up for striking out, and will be free to play in the final in Cardiff on May 21st. Time: 01:14 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

‘Lenient’ Pistorius sentence challenged

first_imgSouth African prosecutors say they will take court action in order to secure a longer prison sentence for Olympic athlete Oscar Pistorius.He was jailed for six years earlier this month for murdering his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp in 2013.Prosecutors argue that Pistorius’ sentence is inappropriate for the crime of murder and “shockingly too lenient”.They also argue that the sentence is unjust and could bring the justice system into disrepute.Pistorius was initially given a five-year term for manslaughter, but was found guilty of murder on appeal last December. He admitted shooting her, but said he had mistaken Ms Steenkamp for an intruder and acted out of fear.Rise and fall of Oscar PistoriusAugust 2012: Competes in London Olympics and Paralympics, where he won a gold medal February 2013: Shoots dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp March 2014: Trial begins September 2014: Judge finds Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide  October 2014: Begins five-year sentence October 2015: Transferred to house arrest December 2015: Appeal court changes verdict to murder  July 2016: Sentenced to six years in jail for murderlast_img read more
