George Stowers of London Irish and Gareth Delve of Gloucester Rugby were tonight suspended for three weeks by an RFU Disciplinary Panel.
Stowers was banned for two weeks for a dangerous tackle on Gloucester Rugby's Dave Lewis and one week for striking Gareth Delve during the Guinness Premiership match at the Madejski Stadium on September 13, 2009.
The panel of Rick Charles (chair), Mike Curling and John Doubleday suspended Delve for striking Stowers.
Both can play again on October 12th.
Delve will therefore be ruled out of the next two Guinness Premiership matches - away at Saracens and Leeds Carnegie - and the Heineken Cup opener at home to Newport Gwent Dragons.
