- Watson must also give social media presentation to teammates
Anthony Watson has been reprimanded by a Rugby Football Union disciplinary panel for conduct prejudicial to the interest of the game after comments made on social media criticising a match official.
The Bath and England wing has been given a one-week suspended ban for a tweet he posted last month, hitting out at the decision by the referee Ian Tempest to send off his teammate Mike Williams in Bath’s defeat by Wasps.
