Mark Jones, the Ebbw Vale forward who was sent off for punching his rival lock Ian Gough in the eye, is likely to be banned for Wales' match with South Africa next month. Jones has been summoned to a Welsh Rugby Union disciplinary committee next Tuesday after he punched his Pontypridd opposite number on Saturday.

Terry Fanolua, the Western Samoan international, will have a meeting with his Gloucester club bosses today to explain his late return to the UK from the World Cup qualifiers. Fanolua, 24, had been selected on the bench for Gloucester's game against Wasps at the weekend but did not fly back into Heathrow until early yesterday. A club spokesman said: "He is sleeping off his jet lag and is due to meet with Richard Hill (coaching director) and John Fidler (team manager) to explain why he did not return in time for Saturday's game." The club will issue a statement after the meeting.
