Worcester lock gets nine week ban for biting

Tevita Cavubati has been banned for nine weeks

Aviva Premiership Rugby club Worcester Warriors will be without lock Tevita Cavubati for nine weeks after he was banned for biting.

Cavubuti was found guilty of biting an opponent during last weekend’s Premiership Rugby match with London Irish.

Cavubati said: “I would like to apologise to all my teammates, the coaches and supporters for the incident which occurred at the weekend.

“I was feeling suffocated while being held down. I was struggling to breathe and reacted in a way that I would never normally do.

“I sincerely apologise to Jebb Sinclair for this behaviour. It was uncharacteristic and this is not the type of player I am. ”

Warriors Chief Executive Jim O’Toole said: “This is a very unfortunate incident that does not reflect our approach to the game in any way and is not a behaviour that we condone.

“Tevita has paid a heavy price for his misdemeanour and has learnt his lesson. “
