Pro14 highlights: Glasgow Warriors 40-16 Cardiff Blues

Taufa'ao Filise has been banned for three weeks following his red card in the Pro14 match against Glasgow.

The Cardiff Blues prop was dismissed by referee Nigel Owens for a dangerous tackle on George Turner during their 40-16 defeat.

A disciplinary hearing in Dublin ruled the offence merited a six-week suspension.

However, Filise was given a 50% reduction because of his co-operation and clean disciplinary record.

He will miss three games - including the Boxing Day match with Dragons - but will be available for the derby against Scarlets on New Year's Eve.
