Ludlow gets a 4 week ban

Lewis Ludlow has received a 4 week suspension following his citing following stamping/trampling Elliot Daly over the weekend.

Ludlow did contest the charge but was found guilty. He is free to play on November 6 2018.

Independent panel chair Gareth Graham said: "The panel accepted that this was a dynamic situation; the incident occurred over a very short period. The player knew that there were bodies on the floor and, in counter-rucking, attempted to step over them.

 "In so doing, he ran the risk that he may commit an act of foul play by making contact with the head or body of an opposition player. By stepping on the opposition player, his actions fell squarely within the definition of a reckless act under the RFU Regulations. The panel found that this act of foul play passed the red card threshold.
