    Hafis who was shown a red card for engaging in a verbal altercation with the centre referee, Denis Clement, decided to take laws into his hands after the decision which he perceived unfavorable.

    After a thorough investigation and reviews of video evidences, Hafis was found guilty of a verbal attack on the referee and also conducting himself in a manner that negates the spirit of good sportsmanship.

    In line with the regulations 17 of the IRB which deals with players’ indiscipline and foul play on the field of play, the Cowrie RFC of Lagos player has therefore been suspended from participating in any NRFF sanctioned tournament for 12 weeks.
    The committee further recommended that more stringent punishment should be handed out to the players in case of future act of misconduct inorder to protect match officials and the integrity of the sport.
