Bath players Matt Banahan and Lee Mears have seen their appeals against suspensions dismissed.
Banahan was given a three-week ban on Tuesday after he was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Anthony Allen during last weekend's Aviva Premiership clash against Leicester.
Mears was cited for punching in the same game and was handed a two-week ban.
Their appeals were heard - and rejected - by Gareth Rees QC with centre Banahan remaining sidelined until December 24 and hooker Mears being able to return seven days earlier.
London Irish No 8 Chris Hala'Ufia meanwhile appealed his five-week ban imposed after he was red-carded for a tip tackle against London Welsh last Saturday.
A decision on that appeal is expected on Friday.
