Hughes to miss Leinster tie


Wasps will be without Nathan Hughes when they face Leinster in the Heineken Champions Cup opener on Friday after a disciplinary panel failed to deliver a verdict on an incident in last weekend's Gallagher Premiership game against Gloucester.

Hughes faces a lengthy suspension after he was cited for an alleged punch on Gloucester flanker Lewis Ludlow in the final minute of Wasps' 35-21 loss at the Ricoh Arena.

The disciplinary hearing was held in Coventry on Wednesday night but the panel failed to reach a decision due to an issue that arose during the evening.

"The independent panel appointed to deal with this case will reconvene in not less than seven days in order to deal with an issue that arose during the evening," Panel chair Gareth Graham said.

"No judgment will be issued by the panel in this period and the panel direct that the player, Wasps Rugby and the RFU are to make no further comment until the case has concluded.

"The player remains suspended until the conclusion of the matter."

The hearing will reconvene within the next seven days but, as a result, Hughes is unavailable for the Champions Cup clash with Leinster on Friday at the RDS.
