Warriors full-back Claassens suspended for a week by RFU
9:56am Wednesday 27th February 2013 in Sport
WORCESTER Warriors full-back Errie Claassens has been handed a one-week suspension by the Rugby Football Union.
Claassens was sent off for tripping Gloucester’s Jonny May in a league match at Kingsholm last Friday.
His suspension expires on March 2, meaning he will miss Worcester’s home match against Wasps on Friday night.
London Irish back-row forward Chris Hala’Ufia has been banned for two weeks by the same disciplinary hearing in Coventry.
Hala’Ufia was cited for striking Wasps hooker Rhys Thomas during an Aviva Premiership game last weekend.
His suspension means he cannot play again until March 12, ruling him out of Irish’s Premiership clash with Northampton on Saturday.
