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).
Ben Morgan was on media duty this week, and as Gloucester prepare for Sunday's trip to Wasps, the number eight is looking forward to see Gloucester go toe-to-toe with another of the Aviva Premiership's front runners.
Tom Marshall scored his first Gloucester try in the 31-23 win over Saracens on Friday evening and was named Man of the Match. Talking to GRTV, he praised the forwards for setting the tone on the night.
Matt Scott was on media duty this week, and the Scottish international spoke about the benefit of having a full week of training with his club mates and the determination to get back to performing well against Saracens this Friday evening.
After the disappointment of last weekend's performance at Leicester, Director of Rugby David Humphreys told GRTV that he expects a big response from Gloucester in Friday's Aviva Premiership fixture at home to Saracens (kick off 7:45pm).
Gloucester's Ciaran Knight made his first start at tighthead prop, Henry Walker made his first appearance as a second half replacement and Alex Seville also featured as England U20s might it three from three in the U20s Six Nations with a 46-0 win over Italy in Darlington on Friday night.
Mental health and wellbeing is just as important as physical health, which is why the Gloucester Rugby Community team have partnered with Public Health Gloucestershire to become Mental Health First Aiders.
