Bath quartet to face RFU disciplinary panel

England flanker Michael Lipman and three of his former Bath team-mates will face an RFU disciplinary panel charged with conduct prejudicial to the interests of the game.

The RFU have completed their initial investigation after Bath accused Lipman, Alex Crockett and Andrew Higgins of failing to take drug tests on three occasions following an end-of-season celebration.

Australian lock Justin Harrison had earlier left the club following lurid allegations stemming from the same incident in a west London bar.

All three players vehemently denied refusing to provide a sample and terminated their contracts on June 1, immediately before they were due to appear before a Bath disciplinary hearing.
