Fainga'anuku given ban

Worcester prop Ofa Fainga'anuku has received a one-week ban following his dismissal in an Aviva A League game against Leicester last Monday.

The Tonga international was sent off for receiving two yellow cards.

The Rugby Football Union announced that Fainga'anuku is free to play again next Monday following the ruling made by judicial officer Jeremy Summers.

The suspension means that Fainga'anuku is unavailable for Worcester's opening Amlin Challenge Cup match against French club Oyonnax on Saturday.
