London Welsh's appeal against a points deduction will be heard by a three-man committee in London on Thursday.

The club were docked five points and fined £15,000 after it emerged Tyson Keats had featured in 10 games without being eligible.

The punishment sent London Welsh to the bottom of the Aviva Premiership, while team manager Mike Scott was banned from rugby for life after he admitted supplying false information to the Rugby Football Union.

Scott accepted a police caution on February 14 for his actions in falsifying registration documents.

London Welsh argue they should not be punished for the actions of Scott, but the original judgement criticised the management structure in place at the club.

An independent three-man panel, comprising Gareth Rees QC, Jim Sturman QC and Philip Evans, will hear the appeal at 4pm on Thursday.
