WORCESTER Warriors chief Alan Solomons insists he will “make sure” Ed Fidow’s discipline is up to scratch when the wing returns from the Rugby World Cup.

The Samoa star received a warning by World Rugby over his actions in the win over Russia before being sent off for two yellow cards against Scotland and then summoned to a disciplinary hearing yesterday.

But having worked with Fidow for a month following his arrival from Provence this summer Solomons said the 26-year-old was a “great guy” and fitted in “really well” with the rest of the squad.

The director of rugby said he was also unaware of Fidow having any disciplinary issues prior to his switch to Sixways.

“I have never coached the player before but during the month that he was here he was fantastic and slotted in. He’s a great guy,” Solomons said.

“Rory Teague coached him at Bordeaux and said he was a fantastic bloke.

“There weren’t any disciplinary issues or anything like that.

“Sometimes in the heat of the moment things happen. But I think our discipline, by in large, is reasonable.”

Fidow appeared to get his World Cup off to a flyer, scoring two tries as Samoa beat Russia 34-9 last week.

But World Rugby then released a statement revealing Fidow had received a citing commissioner warning — a retrospective yellow card — for “striking or punching” in the victory.

On Monday, Fidow got himself into further trouble when he was given his marching orders by referee Pascal Gauzere in the 34-0 defeat to Scotland.

The potent back was sin-binned for going in at the side of a maul, preventing Fraser Brown from scoring, before being brandished a second yellow for sliding knees first into Sean Maitland, stopping the wing from touching down in the corner.

However, after considering all the evidence the judicial committee felt the red-card punishment was “sufficient”, meaning Fidow is “free to play with immediate effect”.

Solomons revealed he had spoken to Fidow following the Scotland match and said he would hold a meeting with him when he arrived at Warriors.

“I have been in touch with him,” Solomons said.

“I am not coaching him at the moment but I am pretty sure that once he is back in the Warriors set-up his discipline will be good.

“We’ll make sure of that.

“Obviously we will debrief him after the World Cup. We will talk about his games and myself and the coaching staff will chat to him.

“He’s a very nice guy and a good rugby player.

“He fitted in really well here, the guys enjoyed him and he enjoyed them.”

A statement released by World Rugby yesterday read: “The first yellow card was for a technical offence and the second yellow card was issued for a minor act of foul play which would not have warranted a yellow card but for the fact that the player had prevented a try being scored.

“The judicial committee determined that the red card was sufficient. The player is free to play with immediate effect.”

This judgement will be a huge relief for Fidow who will hope to feature in Samoa’s clash with hosts Japan on Saturday (11.30am).
