The Waratahs have had a serious spanner thrown in the works after first-choice hooker Tolu Latu was handed a hefty six-week suspension for an incident in last week’s one-point win over the Sunwolves.
According to AAP, Latu pled guilty to SANZAAR’s foul play review committee and was handed the ban for his conduct.
While Latu was not cited by the referee during the match, the citing commissioner decided to charge Latu for dangerous play after reviewing the match and deeming his conduct had “met the red card threshold”.
The 25-year-old was cited for charging into a maul. Although the broadcast angle makes it hard to see, his conduct appeared to injure the knee of Ed Quirk, who subsequently required carting off the field.
His lengthy absence will be a cruel blow to the side, who are already battling personnel issues on the front row.
