Leicester Tigers have lodged an appeal with the Rugby Football Union following the imposition of a nine-game ban on director of rugby Richard Cockerill.
After receiving the written judgement of the RFU disciplinary panel's verdict on the charges relating to the Aviva Premiership Final in May, the club has confirmed that it will "appeal solely against elements of the sentence rather than the guilty verdict," according to a statement released on Wednesday.
Cockerill was banned after being found guilty of using "obscene, and/or inappropriate and/or unprofessional language/behaviour" in an exchange with fourth official Stuart Terheege during the Final.
The Premiership champions were hugely critical of the processes involved in the initial hearing.
"There are elements of the way in which they (the RFU) have conducted this case which, in our opinion, calls into question the new disciplinary structure," read a statement earlier this month.
A date to hear the case will be announced by the RFU in due course.
