Worcester Warriors will be without winger Miles Benjamin for their clash with Top 14 giants Stade Francais in the Amlin Challenge Cup at Sixways on Thursday night.
The speedster was handed a one-week ban for a dangerous tackle on London Wasps fly-half Nicky Robinson during their Aviva Premiership clash at Sixways on October 28. Benjamin appeared before a Rugby Football Union Disciplinary Panel which consisted of David White (chair), Mike Curling and John Doubleday who imposed a suspension which will end on November 14, thus clearing him for Worcester's game against Crociati Parma on Saturday November 19.
A statement read: "The panel deemed that the offence merited a low end entry point sanction and gave the player credit for his guilty plea and good record."
