England rugby player Tom Curry has been handed a two-match ban following a head-high tackle during a match against Argentina. As a result, Curry will miss England’s upcoming group stage clashes against Japan and Chile.
The incident occurred during the match against Argentina, when Curry made a high tackle that made contact with the opposition player’s head. The referee deemed the tackle to be dangerous and issued Curry with a yellow card. After reviewing the footage, the disciplinary panel decided to impose a two-match ban on Curry.
This ban means that Curry will not be available for selection for England’s next two matches in the group stage of the tournament. England will face Japan and Chile in these crucial matches, and Curry’s absence will be a blow to the team.
Curry’s suspension highlights the importance of player safety and the need to address dangerous tackles in the sport. Rugby authorities have been cracking down on high tackles in recent years, aiming to reduce the risk of head injuries for players.
England will now have to make adjustments to their lineup and find a suitable replacement for Curry in the upcoming matches. The team will be hoping to maintain their winning form and secure victories against Japan and Chile to progress further in the tournament.
