Silesi Ma afu punches Tom Youngs 2014

Available for the Premiership Final: Silesi Ma'afu

Northampton prop Silesi Ma'afu will miss Friday's Amlin Challenge Cup Final after being handed a one-week ban.

The Sainst prop has also been ordered to pay £500 costs after punching Leicester hooker Tom Youngs in Saturday's Aviva Premiership semi-final.

The suspension means Ma'afu will however be eligible for the Premiership final against Saracens on May 31.

Meanwhile, Leicester Tigers fly-half Owen Williams must wait to discover if he is to be punished for making contact with the eyes or eye area of Saints centre Luther Burrell in the same match, after his hearing was adjourned.
