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.
Henry Purdy, a first half replacement for Charlie Sharples, was amongst the try scorers in the 64-19 victory over Aviron Bayonnais on Saturday evening and told GRTV that it was a professional performance, one the team are happy with.
Gloucester's win in Treviso last week means that they need a bonus point win against Bayonne on Saturday evening to secure a home quarter-final (kick off 8pm), but Tim Taylor wants the team to focus on the performance first and foremost.
Billy Burns and Man of the Match Richard Hibbard spoke to GRTV after the 41-0 win in Treviso, on a day when preparations weren't ideal. They felt the team's attitude was key and also praised the travelling support.
Following the conclusion of the Stade Francais vs Harlequins game today, round six is complete and the quarter-finalists in the European Rugby Challenge Cup are now known with Gloucester set to welcome the Cardiff Blues to Kingsholm.
Knowing a bonus point win would secure a home quarter-final, Gloucester completed their European mission in some style on Saturday evening, sweeping aside a spirited but outgunned Aviron Bayonnais scoring 10 tries on their way to a 64-19 victory.
