Ulster's Heineken Cup hopes were dealt a severe blow today when John Afoa was handed a four week suspension for an incident in the quarter final against Munster.
Afoa was alleged to have carried out a dangerous tackle on the Munster full back Felix Jones during the second half of the match at Thomond Park Stadium. The complaint was made by Citing Commissioner, Peter Larter (England).

The independent Judicial Officer, Jean-Nöel Couraud (France), heard evidence and submissions from Afoa who pleaded not guilty to foul play.

The player was accompanied by Ulster Rugby, Director of Rugby David Humphreys, Team Manager David Millar and legal representative Donal Spring. The Judicial Officer also heard evidence and submissions from ERC Disciplinary Officer, Roger O'Connor.

The Judicial Officer upheld the citing complaint and found that the offence warranted a red card.
