Byrne to appeal against 2-week misconduct ban

Byrne to appeal against 2-week misconduct ban

Lee Byrne will appeal against the two-week misconduct ban that could rule him out of Wales' Six Nations opener at England.
The British and Irish Lions fullback was banned for entering the field illegally as a 16th player for club side Ospreys last week.
Wales coach Warren Gatland has delayed selecting his team for the Feb. 6 match at Twickenham to wait on Byrne's eligibility.
Gatland had been due to pick his side Sunday.
Byrne played illegally for almost a minute in Ospreys' Heineken Cup victory over Leicester.
The Welsh team was fined (EURO)25,000 ($34,915).
