Chloe Rollie has been handed a three-week suspension after her red card during Scotland’s win over Italy last weekend.

The Scotland fullback was shown a yellow card in the final moments of the 17-10 victory in Parma before it was upgraded to a red by the Foul Play Review Officer - otherwise known as the Bunker.

She had earlier scored her 20th international try in the victory but she’s now unable to take part in the final match of the Guinness Women’s Six Nations when they face Ireland in Belfast on Saturday afternoon.

She then appeared in front of a disciplinary panel on Tuesday morning and they have decided that it was worth a six-week suspension with mitigation reducing the sanction to three weeks based on her record.

A statement said: “Scotland number 15, Chloe Rollie, today appeared before an independent Disciplinary Committee via video link having received a red card for an act of foul play contrary to Law 9.18  in the match between Scotland and Italy on Saturday 20th April 2024.         

“The independent Disciplinary Committee was chaired by Richard Cole (Wales), joined by former international referee Valeriu Toma (Romania) and former international player Stefan Terblanche (South Africa).

“Having accepted that the act of foul play justified the red card and by applying World Rugby’s sanctioning provisions, the disciplinary committee determined that the low-end entry point of six weeks was appropriate with the full 50% mitigation applied, based on exemplary record, good conduct and having shown immediate remorse, reducing the sanction to three weeks.”

As well as Scotland’s game against Ireland, she will also miss two Loughborough Lightning games against Gloucester-Hartpury and Harlequins.

Rollie has a right to appeal the decision, but it is understood she will not do so.
