2007 World Cup

England captain Dylan Hartley’s ban for striking Sean O’Brien is the latest misdemeanour to have tarnished his disciplinary record which have now seen him suspended for a total of 60 weeks.

April 2007 – banned for 26 weeks after being cited for eye-gouging Wasps forwards James Haskell and Johnny O’Connor.

March 2012 – received an eight-week suspension after being cited for biting the finger of Ireland back row Stephen Ferris while playing for England in a Six Nations game.

December 2012 – banned for two weeks after being cited for punching Ulster hooker Rory Best during a Heineken Cup match.

May 2013 – sent off for verbally abusing referee Wayne Barnes during the Premiership final against Leicester at Twickenham. Received an 11-week suspension that prevented him from taking his place on the British and Irish Lions tour to Australia.

December 2014 – sent off for elbowing Leicester centre Matt Smith in the face. Banned for three weeks.

May 2015 – banned for four weeks after head-butting Saracens’ Jamie George in Northampton’s 29-24 Aviva Premiership semi-final defeat to Saracens. As a direct consequence, England ruled Hartley out of their World Cup plans.
