NEWS | Rizzo banned for four weeks

Prop Michele Rizzo has been banned for four weeks after receiving a red card during last Saturday's Guinness PRO14 game against Scarlets.

Following this afternoon's disciplinary hearing, it was decided that the 35-year-old was guilty of reckless, rather than intentional behaviour, and so the ban was reduced to four weeks.

The Italian international is currently on a short-term loan from English Premiership side Leicester Tigers. He will be available to play on 23 October.
