The Rugby Football Union has announced that the 13 Barbarians players, who breached the Covid-19 protocols ahead of the Quilter Cup clash against England last weekend will face disciplinary hearing.
The Barbarians squad along with England squad were in a bio-secure protocol to avoid any outbreak of novel coronavirus ahead of the game.
However, according to reports several Barbarians players including former England captain Chris Robshaw along with Richard Wigglesworth and Scotland wing Sean Maitland left the hotel without informing the organisers.
As a result, the RFU decided to cancel out the game that was scheduled to be played at Twickenham Stadium last weekend and has now charged the 13 players with conduct prejudicial to the interests of the union or the game.
"The RFU recognises the pressure public scrutiny is placing on the players and therefore it will publish players' names, full judgements and sanctions after the hearings have concluded.
"There is no sanction table applicable to charges brought under Rule 5.12 therefore the Independent Panel can issue a range of sanctions at their discretion including fines and/or match bans and/or any other suitable sanction."
