A SANZAR Appeals Committee has reserved its judgement at an Appeal hearing for the Melbourne Rebel's lock Adam Byrnes.

The Rebels appealed Byrnes' 10-week ban for eye gouging during the round two Super Rugby match against the New South Wales Waratahs.

The SANZAR Appeals Committee hearing chaired by Nicholas Davidson QC received submissions during a five-hour hearing at which further oral and video evidence was considered.

The Appeals Committee reserved its decision and indicated it may not be released for several days
