London Irish forward Chris Hala'ufia has been handed a four-week suspension for a dangerous tackle against Sale last week.

Hala'ufia was found guilty of a tip tackle, contrary to law 10.4 (j), on Sale Sharks' David Seymour during the Premiership match between the sides last Friday, December 20.

Hala'ufia - whose charge was initiated by citing commissioner Andy Blyth - is suspended until January 19 and free to play again the following day.

The 35-year-old Tongan international will sit out four matches in all competitions - the league fixtures against Gloucester and Worcester, as well as the Challenge Cup clashes against Lusitanos XV and I Cavalieri Prato.

The case was heard by James Dingemans at Twickenham Stadium.
