London Welsh punishment 'lenient' - Steve Diamond

Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond tells BBC North West Tonight that he expected Premiership relegation rivals London Welsh to be handed a heavier punishment for fielding an ineligible player.

The Exiles lost an appeal against the decision on Tuesday, meaning their five-point deduction will stand.

Following the ruling, the Sharks are five points above bottom club London Welsh with four league matches left to play.
