Moseley veteran Andy Binns has expressed his remorse at being sent off in Saturday's tetchy Powergen Trophy victory at Stourbridge.
The Birmingham team won the match 10-3 but had to defend for long periods after being reduced to 14 men following the full-back's red card.
Binns was dismissed by international referee Steve Lander with an hour gone after the touch judge brought Lander's attention to the fact that Binns had kicked out.
It was an uncharacteristic incident for the good-natured Binns and one he is not proud of.
He said: "I felt something had gone on in the game and I reacted. I should not have reacted. I regret it and should never have responded in that manner."
Binns faces a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing but has already been banned by Moseley for two weeks.
If the RFU believe that is sufficient he could be free to play in the Trophy sixth-round match with National One club Rotherham following yesterday's draw.
The tie takes place at Billesley Common on November 26 and pairs the teams for the first time since the 2002-03 season in which Moseley were relegated from National One.
They met twice that season resulting in a 102-3 loss at Millmoor and a 75-5 reverse at Bournbrook with the former encounter being a poignant one for Binns.
"That 100-pointer was my first game as captain," he said. "But a lot of water has flowed under the bridge since then.
"When we played them that was their side that had just come down from the Premiership. Now we are on the rise again and I would say it is going to be a lot closer this time.
"Previously we got taken apart up front, that is not going to be the case this time, I would back our forwards against most packs in National One the way they are playing at the moment."
