THE disciplinary hearing for Ted Hill's red card in the defeat to Gloucester last weekend has been concluded and the captain has been handed a three game suspension.

Hill, who was sent-off for a tip tackle contrary to World Rugby Law 9.18, accepted the charge and was given a three match suspension by the independent disciplinary panel comprising Mike Hamlin (chair) with Rob Vickerman and Martyn Wood.

The skipper will miss this weekend's trip to Exeter Chiefs, as well as the home game with Leicester Tigers and the away clash with Northampton Saints.
