Leicester fly-half Owen Williams will miss Wales' tour of South Africa this summer after being given a six-week ban.

The 22-year-old would have been looking to win his first senior cap in the Test series but the Rugby Football Union has ended his hopes of facing the Springboks by suspending him until September 1.

Williams pleaded guilty for acts contrary to good sportsmanship, admitting he had "made contact with the eye(s) or eye area of Luther Burrell" in the Tigers' Aviva Premiership semi-final defeat at the hands of Northampton.

"Williams was given a six-week ban from today until the 1st September 2014. He is free to play again on 2nd of September," a statement from the RFU said.

"He will miss the three upcoming matches for Wales as well as three pre-season games for Leicester Tigers."
