All Blacks likely to appeal Melamau ruling

3:54 pm on 10 November 2010

The All Blacks are likely to appeal the four week ban given to hooker Keven Mealamu for headbutting England captain Lewis Moody in the test at Twickenham at the weekend.

Mealamu appeared before a judicial hearing in Scotland this morning and says the decision is disappointing as he's not that type of player.

The All Blacks have 48 hours to appeal the decision although Hansen's unsure on what grounds they will appeal.
