    Byrnes faces new charge

    2012-04-06 08:56

    Sydney - Melbourne Rebels lock Adam Byrnes has been charged with a code of conduct breach over comments he made about Waratahs centre Tom Carter, who accused him of eye-gouging in a Super Rugby match.

    Governing body SANZAR said on Friday the new charge will be heard on Tuesday and comes two weeks after Byrnes successfully appealed a 10-week suspension for dangerous play over the gouging claims.

    Byrnes said following the appeal that Carter had brought the game into disrepute with his claims and accused him of "bringing another player down ... it's a very poor quality to have as a human being."

    Byrnes, who played for Russia at last year's Rugby World Cup because his mother is Russian, has not played since the match against the Waratahs on March 2 due to an arm injury.
