London Irish's Tomas O'Leary has been banned for three weeks following his sending off in last Saturday's Aviva Premiership game against Wasps.
The Ireland international was dismissed for stamping on Wasps flanker James Haskell. The RFU said O'Leary pleaded guilty to the offence at a disciplinary hearing in London.
He cannot play again until March 11, which rules him out of Irish's next two Premiership matches at home to Leicester and away against Exeter.
