World Rugby has confirmed that a Samoa player has been provisionally suspended from Rugby World Cup Sevens following an initial investigation into an alleged incident in the tunnel area after his team’s game against Wales on Saturday.

A statement from World Rugby read: “The alleged behaviour is not aligned with the sport’s values and the excellent spirit in which this competition has been played by the 40 participating teams.

“World Rugby has instigated an investigation and it would be inappropriate to make any further comment until the conclusion of that process. The Samoa player will remain provisionally suspended until the final conclusion of that process.”
