Bristol Rugby 'disappointed' by Hobson ruling

 

Bristol Rugby are surprised and disappointed by the verdict of the RFU Disciplinary Panel on Tuesday evening.

Jason Hobson was cited for 'acts contrary to good sportsmanship' - a charge he denies.

The prop received a twelve-week ban and will be unavailable for nine fixtures. Hobson is free to play again on February, 27 2013.

The Club will await the detailed written judgement before considering all further available options, including a possible appeal.
