Scottish Rugby Union accepts fine over World Cup comments

Posted On: 14 Nov 2019   |   Posted By: Planet Rugby

The Scottish Rugby Union have announced that they will not challenge World Rugby after receiving a £70,000 fine and formal reprimand.
The SRU was reprimanded following comments made by chief executive Mark Dodson during the World Cup.
Tensions rose during the recent tournament in Japan as Scotland's pivotal group clash with the hosts was put under threat by Typhoon Hagibis.
With Scotland needing to win the game to have a chance of progression, Dodson said at a press conference that he did not want his side to be “collateral damage” of the fall-out of the typhoon.
The game in question did go ahead, and Scotland lost 28-21 to crash out of the tournament. But amid the uncertainty of whether or not the fixture would be played at the Yokohama Stadium, Dodson refused to rule out taking legal action in the event of a postponement.
"The Scottish Rugby Union has agreed to pay a donation of £70,000 to World Rugby and the matter is now closed. There will be no further comment from either party."
