Mike Haley of Sale Sharks is due to appear before an independent disciplinary panel after he was cited for a strike that appeared to knock a Wasps’ player unconscious on the weekend.


Haley was cited by independent citing commissioner Shaun Gallagher for allegedly striking Wasps’ Josh Bassett with his arm, contrary to Law 9.12.

The incident occurred in the 77th minute of the match between Sale Sharks and Wasps on Friday 6 April 2018. Haley’s hearing will take place on Wednesday 11 April in Coventry at 18:30.

The panel will be chaired by Gareth Graham with two other panel members to be confirmed.
