One of Rotherham’s top forwards, number eight Laurence Pearce, has been banned for four weeks by the RFU after being found guilty of stamping on a Nottingham player during Saturday’s Championship match at Clifton Lane.

Pearce, believed to be a target for Premiership club Leicester Tigers, will miss tomorrow’s league game at Plymouth, and the two matches in the British and Irish Cup against Llanelli.

He will be eligible to play next against Bedford in the Championship clash at Clifton Lane on Boxing Day.
