Gareth Owen (with ball) has been banned for three weeks.
Scarlets centre Gareth Owen has been ruled out of Friday night's mouth-watering RaboDirect Pro12 top of the table clash with Ulster through suspension.
Utility back Owen and Scarlets skipper Rob McCusker were both sent off for foul play during the dying minutes of the 32-3 Christmas defeat suffered against neighbours Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium.
They appeared in front of league disciplinary chiefs at a hearing in Dublin earlier today with back-row forward McCusker escaping a ban after being dismissed for stamping on an opponent. A panel decided the sending off was adequate punishment.
Owen was dismissed for taking out Morgan Allen in the air. He received a three-week suspension, which will expire on January 16
