WORCESTER Warriors have a two-point deduction hanging over them until the end of the season after their players wore GPS units in last month's fixture at London Scottish.

As well as the suspended points deduction, Warriors have also been slapped with £1,000 fine after the Greene King IPA Championship's organising committee unanimously agreed the club had breached league regulations.

London Scottish did not give Warriors consent to wear the GPS units and Worcester refused to remove them when approached by the hosts, the committee ruled.

Warriors won the match 34-17.

A statement published by the RFU said: "World Rugby and Championship regulations state that GPS units are only permitted provided both clubs participating in the match have given their written consent.

"Clubs wishing to use GPS units in a match are required to ensure the relevant written consents are in place.

"The Championship organising committee determined that Worcester Warriors did not ensure the consent of LS was in place in advance of the match and also refused to remove their GPS units when approached by LS beforehand."

Warriors were not available to comment at the time of going to press.

They have 14 days to appeal against the decision.

Meanwhile, Worcester duo Richard de Carpentier and James Stephenson have been named in the England Sevens squad for the Wellington leg of the Sevens World Series at Westpac Stadium on February 6 and 7.

England will face Papua New Guinea, Canada and New Zealand.
