Mike Williams handed 4-week ban

Bath second-row Mike Williams will have to observe a 4-week suspension which will see hom return to action on 23 March after the 29 year-old executed a high tackle on Gloucester fullback Kyle last weekend.

Referee Wayne Barnes deduced that Williams had hit Moyle directly in the head with the shoulder with no attempt at use of arms and therefore had no choice but to issue the red card.

Earlier in the same match, which was won 16-14 by Bath, Gloucester loose-head prop Val Rapava-Ruskin also saw red after leading with the elbow into a tackle, connecting with the face of one of the Bath players. Rapava-Ruskin was subsequently suspended for three weeks.
