“Rhodes is supposed to have dedicated an act of infamous play in that he struck the Leinster centre, Robbie Henshaw… along with his head in the 2d minute of the match,” said a European Expert Club Rugby observation.
A suspension for Rhodes following that 25-17 accept in Dublin would be a additional setback for Saracens, who are already without suspended fly-half Owen Farrell.
