Glasgow lock Brian Alainu'uese and Leinster wing Barry Daly have been handed one-week suspensions respectively by a Disciplinary Panel.

A panel convened in Wales to consider the red card received by Alainu'uese against the Ospreys last Friday for committing an act of foul play under Law 10.4 (k) – Dangerous Play in the Scrum, Ruck or Maul.

The player appeared by video conference and accepted that he had committed an act of foul play which warranted a red card. The Disciplinary Panel agreed upon a low-end entry point of two weeks' suspension which was reduced to one week due to mitigating circumstances.

A panel also considered the red card received by Daly against the Scarlets for committing an act of foul play under Law 10.4 (e) – Dangerous Tackling.

The player appeared by video conference and accepted that he had committed an act of foul play which warranted a red card. The Disciplinary Panel agreed upon a low-end entry point of two weeks' suspension which was reduced to one week due to mitigating circumstances.

Both players will be free to resume playing from midnight on Sunday, December 4.
