Lawes banned for two weeks

Lawes was cited for a knee-strike on Puma hooker Mario Ledesma in the England vs Argentina group match on Saturday. He pleaded not guilty, but Australian beak Terry Willis disagreed, and sent the big lad down for two weeks of hard labour.Lawes is a bit of a bovver boy, but is generally more of a big hitter than a cheap-shot merchant. Two weeks on the bench will stretch Simon Shaw’s fitness a bit, but Johnno is well served at second row by Tom Palmer [who surprisingly didn’t start against the Pumas] and the hard-working if very ordinary Louis Deacon.
