London Irish No 8 Chris Hala'Ufia has been suspended for five weeks following his sending off for a dangerous tackle on London Welsh player Seb Jewell.

The 34-year-old Tongan was shown a red card for the challenge just 10 minutes into his side's 15-9 Aviva Premiership defeat to London Welsh last Saturday.

Hala'Ufia will not be able to play again until January 7 and will miss the Exiles' home and away Amlin Challenge Cup fixtures against Gloucester as well as three league matches.

He was also ordered to pay £500 towards hearing costs.
