Sky Bet

Sale Sharks centre Andy Tuilagi has been suspended for one week after being found guilty of a dangerous tackle.

The 23-year-old former Leicester and Leeds back was cited for the offence, which occurred during Sale's 21-16 Guinness Premiership loss at Northampton on October 24.

Tuilagi will therefore miss Friday's LV= Cup clash at Newport Gwent Dragons, however he will be free to return on November 11.
