The Committee upheld the red card decision, finding that Morozov had made contact with Timani’s head in a dangerous manner. It then determined that the offence was at the mid-range of World Rugby’s sanctions and selected six weeks as the appropriate entry point.
There were no aggravating factors, and taking into account the considerable level of provocation by Timani prior to the incident, the player’s guilty plea and clear disciplinary record, the Committee reduced the sanction by the maximum of 50% before imposing a three-week suspension.
"taking into account the considerable level of provocation by Timani prior to the incident"
but not enough consideration IMHO
