Exeter winger Gonzalo Camacho has been hit with a three-week suspension following a dangerous tackle on Worcester's Alex Grove.

The 27-year-old Argentinian was given the ban at a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing at the Bristol Filton Holiday Inn on Tuesday night.

Camacho had been cited for his tackle on Warriors centre Grove during the Aviva Premiership clash at Sixways back on April 14.

The panel, chaired by Rick Charles with John Doubleday and Dan White, amended the charge and the player was charged and found guilty of a pick-up, tip-tackle.

Camacho, who pleaded guilty, can return to action for the Chiefs on May 16.

He will miss the crunch clash with Saracens at Vicarage Road on May 5, a game that will decide if they finish in the top four. They are currently one point and one place behind Northampton Saints in the standings.
