Cyprus Today - - SPORT -

WORCESTER prop Ryan Bower has been banned for two weeks af­ter ad­mit­ting dan­ger­ous play in a ruck.

The 27-year-old was sent off by Wayne Barnes to­wards the end of Worcester’s 52-7 win over Bris­tol for mak­ing con­tact with the head of Will Hur­rell.

Bower will miss War­riors’ open­ing Euro­pean Chal­lenge Cup fix­tures at Stade Français and at home to Ospreys.

He will be free to play again for the Premier­ship Rugby Cup en­counter with Sale at Sixways on Oc­to­ber 26.

“The panel found that the player had been in con­trol of his ac­tions when en­ter­ing the ruck and had not charged in off his feet,” said Rugby Foot­ball Union panel chair Daniel White.
