Payne to face disciplinary panel

Ulster full-back Jared Payne will face a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday following his red card during the Heineken Cup quarter-final defeat against Saracens last weekend.

Payne was dismissed after just five minutes at Ravenhill by French referee Jerome Garces.

Payne received his marching orders for an alleged dangerous charge on his opposite number, Saracens' England international Alex Goode, who was subsequently carried off the pitch.

European Rugby Cup confirmed that Simon Thomas, of Wales, has been appointed as independent judicial officer for the hearing, which will take place in Dublin.
