Davies was suspended for using foul and/or abusive language, and for making an obscene gesture during the first-half of the Scarlets' European Rugby Champions Cup clash with RC Toulon last Sunday.

An independent Disciplinary Committee heard evidence and submissions from Davies, who pleaded guilty to the offence.

Davies is free to play on Monday, 2 January 2017.

Both the player and European Professional Club Rugby have the right to appeal the decision.

On Monday Davies issued an apology.

I would like to apologise to my team mates, the fans, the Scarlets, my family and the rugby community as a whole for my unforgiveable actions on Sunday.

During the heat of battle I lost my composure and said and did things I deeply regret.

I apologised to referee Mr Garner both during and after the game but would like to re-iterate my sincerest apologies publically.

– James Davies
