Cockbain out of three Wales Tests

Ospreys lock Brent Cockbain has been banned for 20 days for stamping.

The ban rules Cockbain out of the Wales Tests against Australia, the Pacific Islands and Canada, but he will be available to face New Zealand.

Cockbain pleaded guilty before an ERC disciplinary panel in Dublin after being cited for a stamp in the Ospreys' recent Heineken Cup win over Sale.

He was sin-binned during the match for the offence, but a citing commissioner felt it deserved a red card.

Cockbain, who has not played Test rugby for almost a year after suffering a detached hamstring playing for Wales against Fiji last November, will also miss the Ospreys' match against Australia on Wednesday.

The 31-year-old will be free from suspension on 20 November.

Meanwhile, Cardiff Blues wing Mosese Luveitasau escaped a ban at his disciplinary hearing on Tuesday after he was cleared of a dangerous tackle against Bourgoin.

Toulouse's Omar Hasan (stamping), Salvatore Perugini (head butt) and Trevor Brennan (stamping) were also reported following their loss to Ulster.

Their hearing will be in Dublin on Monday, 6 November, to be chaired by Jeff Blackett (England).
