Bull Suspensions
Here is the news about the Bulls as we promised in our Week 4 podcast.

Two Bulls players suspended

Bulls prop Jaco Engels and flanker Johan Wasserman have been suspended after incidents in last weekend's Super 14 rugby match against the New South Wales Waratahs.

Engels was banned for three weeks for punching while Wasserman received a two-week suspension for rucking an opponent.

"After careful consideration of all the evidence, including clear video evidence of the incident, and submissions made on behalf of the players, the committee found that the two players were clearly guilty of the offence," the SANZAR disciplinary committee said in a statement.

Two NSW players were also handed suspensions on Sunday for their part in the same skirmish shortly after the match began in Pretoria.

Prop Matt Dunning was banned for one match for punching while flanker Rocky Elsom was suspended for four weeks for running in to join the altercation, although he has appealed against the severity of his sentence.
