Once, Twice, Three Times a Victim

Another week, another player being banned for attacking Ulster's Stephen Ferris.

Bath's perennial bad-boy, Danny Grewcock has been handed a seven week ban for stamping on Ferris' arm during Bath's 28-10 home Heineken Cup defeat by Ulster.
This comes after Julien Dupuy casually gave Ferris a sneaky facial during the Ulster v Stade Francais Heineken Cup game. 

Then it was the turn of David Attoub, who decided to give Ferris an impromptu eye examination during the same game.

I'm not quite sure what to make of this.  Either Ferris has some kind of hex on him which attracts this kind of negative attention, or strange mystical forces are in place with the message: "Attack Stephen Ferris at your peril."

Well, the saying is that "it comes in threes" so maybe Ferris can finally breathe a sigh of relief.  He hopes.
