Welsh duo suspended
1 January 2008 17:24pm
A Welsh Rugby Union disciplinary panel has suspended two players for their involvement in incidents during the Magners League match between Cardiff Blues and Newport Gwent Dragons on 26 December.
The Newport Gwent Dragons scrum half Wayne Evans, who was also cited by the match commissioner, was given a two week ban and will be eligible to play again on 10 January 2008.
The sending off and red card handed out to the Newport Gwent Dragons number eight Joe Bearman was upheld by the panel, but he will not face any suspension and is free to play rugby immediately.
Last week the red card punishment handed out to the Cardiff Blues lock Paul Tito was upheld by the panel but he was not suspended from playing rugby.
The panel reached their decisions after watching video footage of the alleged incidents and hearing from each of the players and their representatives.
