The Welsh Rugby Union has confirmed with its referee Nigel Owens the circumstances surrounding the sending-off of three players in Tuesday night's Welsh Premiership game between Swansea and Newport at St Helens.
Tim Evans, the Swansea prop, was dismissed for punching; Mike Voyle, the Newport lock, was dismissed for stamping; Percy Montgomery, the Newport full back, was dismissed for pushing a match official.
The referee and his two touch judges will submit the relevant reports surrounding the incidents. Once the Match Officials' reports are received by the WRU they will be forwarded to the clubs and the players will then be subject to the normal WRU Disciplinary Hearing.
No further statement on this matter will be made by the WRU until after the Disciplinary Hearing.

Twelve young people have been selected to follow a one year WRU Coach Core apprenticeship programme. Coach Core was set up by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as part of the Olympics legacy in 2012 and the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to meet the apprentices on their first day in the job. The programme has been funded by the Hunter Foundation.
The WRU has launched a campaign to create a long term legacy for Welsh club rugby by highlighting the advantages of volunteering. Rhian Edwards, a volunteer at Seven Sisters, has enjoyed many benefits of her volunteering at a grassroots rugby club including being part of the Rugby World Cup volunteer workforce after being nominated by the WRU - and the WRU is asking for more people to develop their 'Welsh rugby roots'.
