NEWS: Wales and Exeter Chiefs prop Tomas Francis has been banned for two weeks after he was found guilty of kicking an opponent in the head during the Chiefs' match against Harlequins last weekend. 

Francis was sent off by referee Matthew Carley in the second half of the Premiership match for allegedly kicking Danny Care, making contact with the head.

The incident was referred to the TMO for review before the Chiefs' prop was red carded.

The player pleaded guilty to the charge and was banned for two weeks until the October 3, 2016. 

The Disciplinary Panel Chairman Gareth Graham said: "The panel found this a low-end offence due to the fact that it was a glancing reckless contact between Francis' shin and the back of Danny Care's head which caused no injury."

The panel comprised of Gareth Graham (Chairman), John Doubleday and Mike Curling.
