SUPPORTERS of both Worcester Warriors and Scotland will find out the length of the ban winger Duhan van der Merwe will face on Tuesday evening after his red card during the 43-12 defeat at London Irish last weekend.

Van der Merwe was sent off for 'reckless or dangerous play, contrary to World Rugby Law 9.11' by Jack Makepeace in the 45th minute following a lengthy TMO check after his forearm made contact with the face of Irish's Kyle Rowe.

He will now face a virtual independent disciplinary panel tomorrow evening (Tuesday 8 March 2022) from 7pm.

The minimum ban he could face would be two weeks/matches and that would rule him out of Scotland's final two Guinness Six Nations matches.

Any more than that and he would miss Worcester fixtures. 

Worcester play Exeter Chiefs this weekend (March 12) and then the same side in the Premiership Rugby Cup next Saturday (March 19) at Sandy Park. 

After that, Warriors have back-to-back away trips to Gloucester Rugby in the Gallagher Premiership (March 25) and Bath Rugby in the final cup group game (March 30).
