Byrne to appeal Six Nations ban

Lee Byrne has confirmed that he will lodge an appeal to Heineken Cup organisers ERC against the sentence he received after pleading guilty to Misconduct during an independent Disciplinary Committee hearing on Friday.

Byrne was banned from rugby for a period of two weeks – ruling him out of Wales’ RBS 6 Nations opening clash with England at Twickenham on Saturday, 6 February – after Misconduct complaints were brought relating to the round 6 Heineken Cup match between Ospreys and Leicester Tigers.

Byrne has been taking legal advice based at national team headquarters, the WRU National Centre of Excellence at the Vale Resort in Hensol, and will lodge the necessary documents for the appeal no later than next Monday.
