Scarlets prop Samson Lee and Bordeaux-Bègles lock Adam Jaulhac have been slapped with bans.

Scarlets tighthead prop Samson Lee and Bordeaux-Bègles second row Adam Jaulhac have been slapped with bans, following European disciplinary hearings.

Lee has been suspended for two weeks, following a disciplinary hearing in Dublin, arising from the European Cup Round One match against Harlequins last Saturday.

Lee is alleged to have stamped or trampled on the Harlequins scrumhalf Danny Care during the second half of the Pool Four match at the Twickenham Stoop.  

He was shown a yellow card by referee John Lacey (Ireland).
 
The complaint was made by citing commissioner Jean-Claude Legendre (France).
 
Law 10.4(b) A player must not stamp or trample on an opponent

The judicial officer, Rod McKenzie (Scotland), heard submissions and evidence from Lee, who pleaded not guilty to the offence, from Scarlets representative, Gareth Jenkins, and from ERC Disciplinary Officer, Roger O'Connor.

The judicial officer determined that Lee was going for the ball, but in doing so, Lee's boot made contact with Care's face in a reckless manner, and that in his opinion, the offence warranted a red card.

He found that the act was at the low-end entry point of the IRB's sanctioning regime (two weeks) and although there were no aggravating factors, and although Lee had a clean record, the player had pleaded not guilty and therefore, no mitigation was possible in this case.

He imposed a suspension of two weeks. Lee is free to play on Monday, October 28 and both the player and ERC have the right to appeal the decision.

* Jaulhac has been suspended for one week, following a disciplinary hearing in Dublin, arising from the Challenge Cup Round One match against Bath last Saturday.

Jaulhac was alleged to have punched or struck the Bath flank Francois Louw during the second half of the Pool Two match at Stade Chaban-Delmas.
 
The complaint was made by the citing commissioner Eugene Ryan (Ireland).
 
Law 10.4(a) Punching or striking. A player must not strike an opponent with the fist or arm, including the elbow, shoulder, head or knee(s)

The judicial officer, Antony Davies (England), heard evidence and submissions from Jaulhac, who pleaded guilty to the offence, Bordeaux-Bègles Chief Executive, Olivier Brouzet, and from ERC Disciplinary Officer, Roger O'Connor.

The judicial officer determined that Jaulhac delivered one punch to Louw's face with no great force and that the offence was at the low-end entry point of the IRB's sanctioning regime (two weeks).

Having taken into account the player's guilty plea and his clean record, he reduced the sanction by 50 percent, and imposed a suspension of one week.

Jaulhac is free to play on Monday, October 21.

Both the player and ERC have the right to appeal the decision.
