Gareth Delve and George Stowers suspended for 3 weeks each

Last night Gareth Delve of Gloucester and George Stowers of London Irish were both suspended for three weeks following their scuffle at the Madjeski Stadium last weekend.

London Irish won the home match comfortably, 40-10, showing great form early in the season.

Back rower Stowers put in a dangerous tackle on scrumhalf Dave Lewis though, which led to Delve taking exception to it, and sparking the brawl, as can be seen in this short clip.

Stowers was handed two weeks for the tackle, and a further one week for striking Welshman Delve.

The Gloucester captain received a straight three weeks for his reaction to the tackle, as he charged in at Stowers and effectively caused the fight.

Both players will miss out on the first round of Heineken Cup fixtures as they’re only free to play again on October 12th.

Unfortunately this footage doesn’t include the tackle, and this clip is short, but we had requests for it so thought we best share it. It does show Delve charging in though, and the ensuing chaos both on the field, and off it.

Time: 0:24



  • Off the ball sillyness and blantant punching, 3 week ban sounds just about right. Lets get rid of this stupid thuggery

  • i think the guiness prem needs to sort itself out this is getting out of control. Try and concentrate on playing the game and not with all this off the ball/cheating/bending the rules schoolboy rubbish. Just to remind you, your PROFESSIONALS act like it.

  • magners are you having a laugh son? Or did you just enjoy the Premierships summer travails so much you don't want to let go?

    How on earth is this related to the events at Bath and Quins? How is it out of the ordinary for the game? The odd punch doesn't get thrown in other top flights games right? Grow up.

    Looks like the Prem has got right back to business to me, and so far it's been great to see.

    Premiership is quality. Don't care what you say. I think most of you are hating the english rather than the GP anyway with your silly little shoulder chips.

  • 3 weeks for blatantly charging in and starting a brawl whereas Jaques Fourie gets 4 weeks for a mistimed challenge . This citing thing is an absolute bloody disgrace!

  • I dont think we're seeing enough of this behaviour actually. Anyone seen NRL State of origins? that does it no harm it adds to the spectacle if anything. Nothing wrong with passion and punches.

    3 weeks seems ok in comparison to the recent trend. But do need to see a lot more fighting on the field...amongst props preferably.
