Major League Rugby (MLR) has announced that the Austin Gilgronis have been disqualified from the end-of-season playoffs after violating competition rules.

How they have violated the rules has not yet been made clear.

In a statement, the competition organisers said: “Due to a violation of league rules, the Austin Gilgronis have been disqualified from 2022 postseason play. Championship Series fixtures will be announced as they are determined.”

The Gilgronis appeared to have secured a home semi-final at the weekend after defeating the San Diego Legion 44-28, but it all now appears in vain.
