London Irish prop Will Goodrick-Clarke has been banned for three weeks after being sent off in his side’s European Challenge Cup win over Cardiff Blues.
The 25-year-old was dismissed for a dangerous tackle six minutes into the second half after making contact with the head of Blues prop Dillon Lewis.
He admitted the offence, which carries a starting point of a six-week ban.
His guilty plea and good disciplinary record saw him have three weeks cut from the punishment.
Goodrick-Clarke will miss his side’s Challenge Cup quarter-final away at Bath on Friday as well as Premiership trips to Northampton and Harlequins.
