Day saves the day…

Standard

The eye-gouging allegation against Mark Cueto and the “compelling mitigation” received unusual support when the alleged victim, Northampton’s Christian Day, said he was not “gouged” by the England wing.

In a very supportive statement Day believed that the issue had been taken out of context and looked far worse than it was. He had been the victim of eye-gouging attempts previously – and this was not one of them: “It was a pushing motion from an open hand, I felt no contact with my eye.”

Cueto received a 9 week ban from the RFU after being cited following the fractious match between Sale and Northampton which Northampton won 53-24, running in eight tries.
