Kieran Brookes and Calum Green both suspended following breakdown altercations

Kieran Brookes of Northampton Saints and Calum Green of Newcastle Falcons have both appeared before an RFU Disciplinary panel for offences stemming from their Aviva Premiership match over the weekend.

Brookes was charged with charging into a ruck, contrary to Law 10.4(h), while Green was charged with striking with the arm, contrary to Law 10.4(a). Both appeared before a three-person RFU Disciplinary panel chaired by Mike Hamlin in Leeds on Tuesday evening.

Prop Brookes was sent off by referee Andrew Jackson for charging into a ruck and making contact with the head of Scott Lawson. What made it look worse, and probably draw the attention of the officials, was that Lawson fell back onto his halfback, injurying his leg in the process.

Interestingly Green, for his part, was cited for striking Brookes with his forearm.

Both Brookes and Green pleaded guilty and were handed two-week suspensions.

Since Green has a good disciplinary record, his suspension was reduced to one week. He will be available for selection December 6th.

Since Brookes does have a disciplinary history, the panel chose against reducing his two-week ban and therefore, he will be available December 13th.
