The Welsh Rugby Union condemns violence and misconduct and accepts without question the other sanctions imposed at the hearing which took place in Cardiff this week.
Legal and rugby advisers are being asked by the WRU for their views on the points deduction sanction which inevitably penalises young players yet to be selected for future squads. Welsh rugby officials will also liaise with their counterparts from the French Rugby Federation to consider the implications of the sanctions.
Also at the Cardiff hearing the Wales back five forward Jevon Groves was banned from playing for three weeks for misconduct and will therefore take no further part in the tournament.
Three French players were banned, Dijbril Camara and Jeremy Braille for nine weeks each and Rabah Slimani was banned for 13 weeks.
Both rugby unions were fined £50,000 suspended for two years and the amount is therefore not payable provided teams avoid any further misconduct.
The WRU recognises that the IRB has acted decisively in this matter and fully supports fair and firm measures to counter misconduct in the game.
Now the WRU is anxious that the superb conduct and playing quality in evidence throughout the tournament is recognised and urges all players from all nations to focus on the games ahead.
We are certain the players found guilty of misconduct in this matter will have learnt valuable lessons which will help them achieve success through their undoubted rugby playing talents in future.
The inaugural IRB Junior World Championship is a great success and with the semis and the final still ahead the partnership between the IRB and the WRU has already proved to be highly successful in this tournament.
