Gloucester flanker Matt Kvesic and Leicester centre Seremaia Bai have both been handed three-week bans by a disciplinary committee.

Bai was suspended for three weeks after pleading guilty to charging into a ruck or maul, contrary to Law 10.4(h).

The RFU disciplinary panel of His Honour Judge Sean Enright (chair), Daniel White and Steve Miles, sitting at the Coventry Holiday Inn, deemed the offence to be of mid-range entry point for sanction and banned Bai from May 10 to May 31. He is free to play again on June 1. 

Kvesic was suspended for three weeks after pleading guilty to a tip tackle, contrary to Law 10.4(j).

The panel deemed the offence to be of low-range entry point for sanction and banned Kvesic from May 10 to May 31. He is free to play again on June 1. 

Kvesic will now miss Gloucester's play-off match for a chance to win a place in next season's Champions Cup, having won the Challenge Cup two weeks ago.
