Scrum V Pro14 highlights: Ospreys 22-13 Zebre

Ospreys' Ben John has been banned for two weeks after being cited for foul play in the 22-13 win over Zebre.

The centre, 26, was sent to the sin bin after 13 minutes of the Pro14 opener at Liberty Stadium for a dangerous challenge in the air on Matteo Minozzi.

A disciplinary panel in Dublin deemed that the act of foul play was worthy of a red card and warranted a low-end sanction of four weeks.

But John's behaviour and good disciplinary record saw this halved.

John will now miss Saturday's Pro14 trip to Glasgow and the home game on 16 September against Munster.
