Following an appeal on Monday afternoon, it has been announced this morning that Gloucester Rugby number eight Gareth Delve has had his ban for striking reduced from three weeks to two.
Delve originally received a three week ban for striking London Irish's George Stowers during the Guinness Premiership match at the Madejski Stadium on September 13th, 2009.
However, after appeal, the ban has been reduced from three weeks to two. Delve sat out the defeat at Saracens on Sunday so will miss Sunday's Guinness Premiership fixture at Leeds Carnegie but be available for the Heineken Cup opener at home to Newport Gwent Dragons a week on Friday.
