Sale Sharks centre Johnny Leota has received a two-week ban for a "dangerous tackle" incident with Bath winger Aled Brew.

The 32-year-old was shown a yellow card at the end of Bath's 30-3 win over the Sharks but the citing commissioner also charged him afterwards.

Leota will miss Sale's European Champions Cup opener against Scarlets and the game against Toulon.

He is free to play again on 25 October, so could feature against Bristol.
