    SANZAR delays appeal verdict

    2012-03-13 15:29

    Sydney - SANZAR has delayed a decision on Melbourne Rebels lock Adam Byrnes's appeal against his 10-week ban for eye-gouging.

    The southern hemisphere rugby body said on Tuesday that its appeals committee had reserved judgment after hearing evidence for five hours, adding that the decision might not be announced for several days.

    Byrnes, who played for Russia at last year's World Cup, appealed his suspension after he was found guilty of making contact with the eye area of Waratahs center Tom Carter in a Super Rugby game on March 2.

    Byrnes and the Rebels said the contact was "absolutely accidental and without intent."

    The Waratahs won the match 35-19.
