Newport's Kevin Moseley is one of three players banned for four weeks by a Wales RFU disciplinary panel yesterday. Moseley and Ian Greenslade, the Bridgend hooker, were dismissed for fighting during the match on 23 September while the Treorchy second row Steve Evans was sent off at Abertillery on the same day. All three are banned until 1 November. Llanelli's Tony Copsey, sent off for punching Mike Hall last Saturday, will appear before the panel later this month, although he has already been banned by his club for tomorrow's Heineken League match against Aberavon.

Claudio De Rossi, the Benetton Treviso full-back, has been suspended by the Italian Federation after testing positive, at an international training session, for the banned steroid, nandrolone.
