    Melbourne Rebels lock Adam Byrnes’ 10-week suspension from Super Rugby has been over-turned by a SANZAR appeals committee.

    Byrnes was banned by a judiciary officer who found him guilty of dangerous play in making contact with NSW Waratahs centre Tom Carter’s eye area during the teams’ round two clash on March 2.
