Gareth Delve of Gloucester Rugby has appealed against his three week ban for striking London Irish's George Stowers during the Guinness Premiership match at the Madejski Stadium on September 13th, 2009.
Delve was suspended on Monday evening along with George Stowers of London Irish at an RFU Disciplinary Hearing which initially ruled him out of Sunday's trip to Saracens plus the Guinness Premiership fixture at Leeds and Heineken Cup tie at home to Newport Gwent Dragons.
The appeal will be heard by the RFU Disciplinary Officer Jeff Blackett at the offices of the Judge Advocate General, Chancery Lane on Monday, September 28th (3pm).
