Serbia's Zarko Kovacevic handed 10-match ban by Rugby League European Federation

Serbia player Zarko Kovacevic has been handed a 10-match ban by the Rugby League European Federation in the latest fall-out from the abandonment of last month's international against Ireland in Belgrade.

The RLEF's d isciplinary committee found Kovacevic guilty of two charges of misconduct that included tripping, kicking and striking during Serbia's match against Ireland on August 29 and say h e has until Thursday afternoon to launch an appeal.

Marko Jankovic resigned from his post as Serbia coach and was last week given an indefinite ban by the RLEF for his part in the abandonment of the match, which was halted following a brawl that broke out after he allegedly made contact with an Ireland player.
