Jersey full-back Barry Davies given three-week RFU ban

The Rugby Football Union have banned Jersey full-back Barry Davies for three weeks after he admitted striking an opponent in the 13-10 win over Rotherham last month.

The off-the-ball incident also led to team-mate Dave Markham and Rotherham's Daniel Sanderson being sin-binned.

Jersey had suspended the former Welsh international for a fortnight.

He will miss Saturday's match at Bedford and will also be out of next week's game with Nottingham.

He joined Jersey in September last year after three seasons with Ospreys and won a Welsh cap against Ireland in the 2006 Six Nations.

"Club officials reviewed the relevant footage from the match at St Peter and decided there was a case to answer regarding alleged foul play," said a club statement.
