Verbal abuse earns ex-Wales youth player James Egan 48-week ban
A former Wales youth international rugby player has been banned for 48 weeks for verbally abusing match officials.
James Egan was sent-off while playing for St Joseph's against Clwb Rygbi Caerdydd in January 2015.
Egan played for Wales Under-19s in 2007 and the Under-20s a year later.
The duration of the ban means he will not be able to resume playing until 1 March 2016 once the close season has been taken into account.
