Wasps to appeal against Nathan Hughes ban

Wasps today confirmed that the club will appeal against the three week ban (to include three meaningful fixtures) given to no. 8 Nathan Hughes at an RFU disciplinary hearing on Tuesday evening.

The club will appeal on the grounds that it was an accident and no foul play occurred.  

Wasps have informed the RFU of their decision and the hearing will be on Friday next week.

Wasps are not in a position to comment further until the result of the appeal hearing has been received.
