With the latest signings announced earlier today Academy Manager Peter Malone gives his thoughts on the newest members to join the Munster Rugby Academy.
Both offences were deemed to be "mid-range" but the WRU professional disciplinary panel, chaired by Terry Vaux, gave Holah a two-week ban last Tuesday after mitigating factors were taken into account.
However, not surprisingly, the Ospreys appealed the decision and tonight at the Millennium Stadium, a WRU professional disciplinary panel, chaired by Roger Morris, upheld the Ospreys' appeal.
It's a significant outcome as Holah is a hugely influential figure in the Ospreys team and would have been a bigger loss to them than either Lee Byrne or Shane Williams.
Ospreys: Barry Davies; Tommy Bowe, Andrew Bishop, James Hook, Richard Fussell; Dan Biggar, Mike Phillips; Paul James, Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones; Ryan Jones, Alun Wyn Jones; Jerry Collins, Marty Holah, Jonathan Thomas. Replacements: Mefin Davies, Duncan Jones, Craig Mitchell, Ian Gough, Justin Tupuric, Jamie Nutbrown, Sonny Parker, Nikki Walker.
