Ireland has released a statement after a World Rugby disciplinary committee handed centre Bundee Aki a three-game ban for his red card against Samoa on Saturday.
Aki and Ireland sought to overturn the red card at his hearing but having “considered all the angles of the incident, together with evidence from the player and his representatives, the committee upheld the decision of the referee.”
Ireland say they are “disappointed” with the decision but are yet to decide on whether or not they will appeal the decision.
“The Ireland Management are disappointed with the outcome of Bundee’s hearing and will review the Judicial Committee’s written report once received.” a statement read.
Teams generally have 48 hours to appeal a decision.
