London Irish number eight Chris Hala'Ufia has been suspended for three weeks after pleading guilty to a dangerous tackle on Wasps fly-half Dave Walder.

The Tonga international admitted to the offence - which took place during the Guinness Premiership fixture on April 4 - before an RFU Disciplinary Panel on Wednesday.

The ban begins with immediate effect meaning Hala'Ufia will miss Sunday's match with Leeds and the following fixture at Gloucester.

However, he could return for the Exiles' final match of the regular season against Northampton on May 8 and the Guinness Premiership play-offs.
