Kieran Brookes: Pleaded guilty

Newcastle prop Kieran Brookes was banned for six weeks after pleading guilty to pushing referee Greg Garner during Sunday's Aviva Premiership match against Leicester.

Brookes was cited for physical abuse of a match official for recklessly pushing or otherwise making contact with Garner in his side's 41-18 loss to Leicester Tigers at Kingston Park on Sunday.

His ban runs until April 20 and he is free to play again the following day. He will miss the Falcons' next two matches but will be available for selection for their last two fixtures against London Wasps and Exeter Chiefs.

The case was heard at the Leeds Brighouse Holiday Inn by a panel of Antony Davies (chairman), Samantha Hillas and Austin Newman.
