Day handed three-week ban
Northampton lock Christian Day has been suspended for three weeks by an RFU disciplinary panel for stamping on an opponent last weekend.
The player had been charged with the offence contrary to law 10.4 (b) following a report by the citing officer Matt Bayliss after the LV+Cup match at Exeter.
Day, who pleaded guilty at Thursday night's hearing, is suspended from February 7 until February 27 and is free to play again the following day.
The case was heard by a panel of John Brennan (chairman), Peter Howard and Peter Rhodes in Coventry.
