Sharples: In the dock
Gloucester wing Charlie Sharples has been suspended for two weeks by the Rugby Football Union.
The punishment comes after the Cherry and Whites flyer pleaded guilty to tackling Sale's Marika Vakacegu in the air during their Guinness Premiership encounter on October 30.
Sharples was dismissed in the 35th minute of the 28-23 defeat and will be free to play again on November 19.
