Sale back row Andy Powell has escaped a suspension despite being found guilty of mouthing foul language and making an offensive hand gesture to fans during their 31-10 defeat at Bath.

The Wales international was handed a fine though, with an RFU Disciplinary Panel ordering the Wales international to pay £5,000, although £4,000 of that is suspended until 30 May next year.

But Sharks winger Tom Brady was handed a ban after he was found guilty of a dangerous tackle on Ben Skirving during the same game at the Rec.

Brady was given a two-week ban to leave the Aviva Premiership club's bottom side without his services until 16 October.
