Launceston: Barrie-John Chapman receives four-week ban

Launceston forward Barrie-John Chapman has been suspended for four weeks by a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing for making a dangerous tackle.

The 29-year-old was cited following the 22-20 defeat at Clifton on October 13.

The back-rower, who was banned by the Cornish All Blacks before the hearing, pleaded guilty to the charge.

Chapman, who missed the County Championship final in May while serving an eight-week ban for stamping, will be back to face Exmouth on December 7.
