Perpignan star slammed with six-week ban
October 18, 2013
Perpignan's Lifeimi Mafi has been slammed with a six-week ban for his tip-tackle on Ryan Mills during their match at Kingsholm last weekend.
Mafi was issued with a straight red card for the tackle which occurred in the 74th minute of the match and he will be free to play again on December 8. Mafi can appeal the decision, if he so wishes.
And Bath's Ollie Devoto will be on the sidelines for two weeks after being found guilty of striking Blair Connor with his head on Saturday. He will be available for Bath on October 28.
