Fidow to face disciplinary hearing on Wednesday

Manu Samoa winger Ed Fidow will attend a disciplinary hearing in Tokyo on Wednesday, having picked up a red card in the game against Scotland.

Fidow (26) was given two yellow cards and thus a red during the match on Monday night at Kobe Misaki Stadium, both for illegal plays that prevented tryscoring opportunities.

In the previous game against Russia, he received a Citing Commissioner Warning for punching or striking, which will remain on his disciplinary record since he has accumulated three warnings or yellow cards during the tournament.

The Manu have already had three-match bans given to Motu Matu'u and Rey Lee-Lo for their illegal tackles during that same game against Russia.
