Junior Bok gets two-match ban

Junior Boks flanker Zain Davids has been handed a two-match suspension for punching a Georgia player on Sunday.

Davids received a red card in the 80th minute of the World Rugby U20 Championship match, and appeared before a disciplinary committee at the Avchala Stadium in Tbilisi on Monday.

The judicial officer, Mike Hamlin, ruled that the act of foul play breached Law 10.4 (a) (striking a player) and imposed a low-end entry point sanction of two matches.

The ruling means that Davids will be available for selection for the last round of matches in the tournament on Sunday, 18 June, which includes the final.
