Three players from Irish provinces in trouble for alleged punches, kicks and forearm strikes

Another busy week for the disciplinary committee.

Ulster seemed to have literally won their weekend Guinness PRO12 battle with Scarlets.

Neil Doak's side claimed a vital league win over the Welsh visitors, on Friday, but two of their players - Luke Marshall and Roger Wilson -have been cited for alleged foul play.

A league statement reads: 'Marshall has been cited for allegedly kicking an opponent in the PRO12 match against Scarlets at Kingspan Stadium. Wilson has been cited for allegedly striking/punching an opponent in the same match.'

The committee will meet later this week and, while they are at it, will study footage of another alleged incident in Leinster's draw with Ospreys. The statement adds, 'Ben Te'o, the Leinster centre, has been cited for allegedly striking with the forearm in the match at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea.'

At the time, referee John Lacey overruled his TMO, deciding that it was not worth punishment.

Have a look at the incident and decide for yourself.

There was better news for Ulster, this afternoon, following the IRFU announcement of a new, two-year deal for Andrew Trimble with the province.

Meanwhile, Pascal Papé's appeal against the severity of his 10-week ban, for kneeing Ireland's Jamie Heaslip, has been rejected.

JAMIE HEASLIP: A fractured vertebrae has ruled him out for four weeks.
