Good piece from Pundit Arena on "the most banned international XV". We in Ireland got have had a second on this team - Peter "Claw" Clohessy got 6 months I think for stamping one a French lock. Any other omissions?

International rugby's most banned XV Empty Re: International rugby's most banned XV

Just in case link doesn't open
1. Prop: Johan Le Roux – 18 months - Most famous for biting the ear of All Black legend Sean Fitzpatrick during a 1994 Test match, the Springbok prop received an 18-month ban for his troubles. Afterwards the unrepentant Le Roux admits that had he known the ban would have been that long, he would have bitten Fitzpatrick’s ear clean off. Charming.

2. Hooker: Dylan Hartley – 54 weeks - The current England captain has a brutal disciplinary record, with six separate bans for foul play including biting, head butting, elbowing, gouging and verbal abuse. The head butt incident cost him his place in the 2015 World Cup squad but was named England captain by new coach Eddie Jones earlier this year and has seemingly turned over a new leaf.

3. Prop: David Attoub – 70 weeks - In 2009 Attoub was found guilty of a deliberate eye-gouge on Ulster’s Stephen Ferris. Following Ferris’ testimony, the disciplinary committee threw the book at the French international.

4. Lock: Danny Grewcock – 28 Weeks - The England international has had his fair share of issues with his temper. With six separate bans imposed for violent conduct between 1998 and 2010, it seems that the 28 weeks imposed on the second row didn’t really rehabilitate him at all.

5. Lock: Kevin Moseley – 32 weeks - During an international test against France in 1990 the former Wales international was adjudged to have stamped on Marc Andrieu and received a 32-week ban; at the time the longest ban ever handed down.

6. Flanker: Trevor Brennan – Five Years - Found guilty of attacking a fan while he was warming up on the sideline during a game between Ulster and his side Toulouse. Brennan’s excuse was that the fan apparently said something derogatory about his mother. Initially handed a lifetime ban, this was reduced to five years on appeal. Brennan promptly retired.

7. Flanker: Calum Clarke – 32 Weeks - The Northampton flanker was found guilty of hyper-extending and breaking the arm of Leicester’s Rob Hawkins in 2012. Originally given a 64-week ban, this was halved following a guilty plea by Clarke.

8: Mark Jones – 17 Weeks - The former Wales No. 8 was never one to shy away from an altercation on the field. Fighting, punching and a head butt incident aged 38 saw Jones accrue 17 weeks in bans.

9. Scrum Half: David Bishop – 11 Months - Despite breaking his neck early in his career, the Wales international scrum half defied doctors and returned to play within a year.
While many expected the Welsh firebrand to amass more than a solitary international cap, it was an off the ball incident in which he broke an opponent’s jaw that put an end to his international prospects.

10. Fly Half: Percy Montgomery – 6 Months - One of South Africa’s most capped players, the versatile winger, centre and fly half amassed nearly 900 points for the Springboks between 1997 and 2008. He also managed to receive a two-year ban and a £15,000 fine for pushing a touch judge to the ground while playing for Newport in 2003. 18 months of the ban was suspended, however.

11. Wing: Rupeni Caucaunibuca – 12 Months - The Fiji international was at times a blistering winger but it is his disciplinary record that he is most remembered for. The majority of his time banned stems from a year-long suspension which the Fiji Rugby Union imposed when he failed to show up for national team duties. Shorter bans for punching and cannabis use bookended this lengthy hiatus from the game.

12. Centre: Seru Rabeni – 17 weeks - Former Fiji international Rabeni, who tragically passed away earlier this year, was no stranger to over-the-top physicality. High tackles and eye gouging in 2008 saw him sit out 17 weeks of that season.

13. Centre: Sireli Naqelevuki – 3 Months - Fiji international Naqelevuki tested positive for cannabis in 2007 following a sevens tournament in South Africa and was promptly handed a three-month ban.

14. Wing: Delon Armitage – 24 Weeks - Now one of England’s finest exports and a star of European rugby giants Toulon, Armitage has had his fair share of run-ins with disciplinary committees. Tip tackles, physical and verbal abuse of officials and fans have seen him amass 24 weeks on the sidelines.

15. Fullback: Silvere Tian – 15 Months

The Ivory Coast international was handed a 15-month ban in April of this year while playing for Top 14 side Oyannax. The fullback lost his cool and called referee Romain Poite ‘Poopie’ after being yellow carded for coming in from the side of a ruck.

The way some posters talk, you'd think that Mike Brown would be in that team. And yet he's not even the most banned English fullback.

The way some Irish talk, you'd also think that Liam Williams would be in that team. I wonder if they've even heard of JPR?

This is a shame. I personally would like to see move rugby played under the influence of cannabis.

That was just plain crazy. Surprised he didn't get charged with GBH. I don't know if a video of it still exists anywhere on the internet, but it made Cantona's kung fu kick seem tame.

He climbed up the steps to where the guy was sitting in the crowd and starting punching the head off him.

Trevor obviously loves his ma!

Best bit of it all is that he went after the wrong guy and was it not something about her pub too?

Brennan and Attoub are the most notorious for me. I recall Gareth Thomas copped a ban alongside Brennan for trying to 'aggressively enter the stands'. Being the first and highest profile sports personality to come out thereafter caused nearly everyone to forget just how much of an utter plonker of a person Thomas was.

There was that Argentine prop who copped 99 years I believe for a full-fledged kick to the face of a downed opponent, though he probably wasn't near international quality anyway and I imagine everyone on the list was good for at least a cap or two.

Wasn't Julien Dupuy banned for Eye gouging too in the same match as Attoub?

Against Ferris as well, no less. He was under Stade's skin that day.

I know they both copped long term bans.

Kevin Yates was done for biting an ear wasn't he?

Seems a fairly complete list -
http://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/rugby/rugby-news/new-definitive-list-rugbys-bad-10502458

Includes plenty that copped 2yr bans for drugs and a good few internationals.  

I had forgotten the Matt Stevens thing.  Lipman and Harrison avoided bans didn't they as they quit and returned back to Super Rugby before investigation.

Does Deano Richards count (banned as a manager not a player - but ex-international)

Chilliboy's ban just before signing for Toulon.
