Venter ban reduced on appeal by English RFU

Venter ban reduced on appeal by English RFU

A 14-week ban handed out to Saracens' director of rugby Brendan Venter has been reduced to 10 weeks after an appeal hearing of the English Rugby Football Union.
Former South Africa center Venter had been found guilty of conduct prejudicial to the interests of the game over an incident involving spectators during a match against Leicester earlier this month.
Venter's ban will now run until July 29, the RFU said in a statement on Wednesday.
However, it means he will not be able to attend the Premiership final on Saturday between Saracens and Leicester at Twickenham.
