Rhys was cited for an alleged stamp after the Kelso game on 1st March 2014 and attended an SRU Disciplinary hearing last Wednesday night, where he received a five week suspension reduced to three weeks, backdated to 8th March.
In effect, he will miss the Watsonians game.
We will not be appealing the suspension. Rhys will remain in Edinburgh, supporting Stewart’s Melville till the end of our league campaign, and, on behalf of the club, I thank him for his services to date and enthusiasm.
The club would urge all members to focus on supporting the boys in their final league game of the season against Watsonians at Myreside on 22nd March, kick off 3 pm.
The club will make no further comments on the citing and subsequent suspension and consider the matter closed.
