Four-week suspension for Rea


Ulster's Matthew Rea has been suspended for four weeks following his red card in the Guinness PRO14 loss to Connacht.

Rea was dismissed by referee Andrew Brace early in the second half of the game at Kingspan Stadium after tackling Cian Kelleher in the air.

The Disciplinary Committee comprising Pamela Woodman (chair), Kathrine Mackie and Ian Douglas (all Scotland) found that he had committed an act of foul play and that the referee was right to produce a red card.

The player's clean disciplinary record and that there were no aggravating factors resulted in the committee reducing the ban from eight weeks to four.

As a result the player will be free to resume playing on Monday, November 5.
