Cardiff Blues wing Tom James has received a two-week suspension after he was sent off during the Heineken Cup victory over Gloucester last weekend.
The Wales international was red-carded after 27 minutes by Irish referee Alan Lewis for butting Gloucester's French hooker Olivier Azam.
Despite his dismissal, the Blues beat Gloucester 16-12 to secure a place in this season's quarter-finals.
An independent disciplinary committee convened in Dublin today and decided that James' offence was at the low-end level of seriousness for a strike with the head.
James' suspension is until February 1, meaning the only game he misses is the Blues' final European pool game against Arms Park visitors Calvisano tomorrow night.
