An independent disciplinary committee has ruled that Munster team doctor Jamie Kearns verbally abused Saracens hooker Jamie George

Munster team doctor Jamie Kearns has been fined 2,000 euros (£1,699) and handed a suspended three-week touchline ban for verbally abusing Saracens hooker Jamie George.

Kearns reportedly abused George about his weight during the English club’s 15-6 win at Allianz Park on December 14, prompting the hooker to react angrily and leading to a mass fight on the pitch.

An independent disciplinary committee has determined that Kearns breached European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) rules during the incident.

A statement read: “The Independent Disciplinary Committee took into account the immediate expression of remorse shown by Dr Kearns and determined that he serve a three-week touchline ban, suspended for a period of 12 months and pay a fine of €2,000 (due immediately).

“Both Dr Kearns and EPCR have the right to appeal the decision.”
