Lewis Moody faces World Cup mouthguard fine
Tuesday 11 October 2011
England captain Lewis Moody will be fined £4800 if he is found to have worn a branded mouthguard in Saturday's Rugby World Cup quarter-final defeat by France, the IRB have said.
Tournament officials are very strict on any breaches of the commercial regulations and they have already fined Moody's England team-mate Manu Tuilagi and the latter's brother Alesana Tuilagi, who plays for Samoa.
An International Rugby Board representative confirmed Moody would be hit with the same standard NZ 10,000 fine if the allegation is proven.
A Rugby Football Union spokesman said England, who returned home from New Zealand today, had not yet received any communication on the matter from the International Rugby Board.
