Cockerill gets ban appeal date

Leicester are hoping Richard Cockerill's ban is reduced

Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill will have his appeal against a nine-match suspension heard in London on Monday, July 29.

Cockerill was banned after being found guilty of "unprofessional and inappropriate" behaviour and for using "extensive foul language" in a touchline exchange with fourth official Stuart Terheege during the Aviva Premiership final.

The appeal is against the sanction only and will be heard by chairman Gareth Rees QC, Jeremy Summers and Dr Julian Morris.
