    As long as it is not in sidewall it can be repaired. That looks as if it is on diameter should not be a problem

    as above, i'll be surprised if anyone repairs that.

    the problem is that it's on the part of the tyre that wears quicker than the rest, so the plug is likely to wear away and start to leak air - i've seen it happen.

    Yep from what I've been told puncture repairs are not allowed at all in sidewalls and are not recommended on either side within a short distance of the sidewall, although some may offer to repair a puncture so close to the sidewall but it is not advisable. So it can be repaired but no-one should offer to do so.
