Sale Sharks back-row Luke Abraham has been banned for eight weeks after pleading guilty to headbutting an opponent.

Abraham, 25, was punished by the Rugby Football Union following the incident during his club's 24-23 Guinness Premiership defeat to Saracens on March 1.

He had already served a two-week suspension for a similar offence in Sale's match against Bath just before Christmas.

Meanwhile, Sale forward Chris Jones received a one-week ban for stamping in the same game.
