Wasps and England centre Kyle Eastmond has been banned for six weeks after pleading guilty to two dangerous tackle offences in Wasps' win at Harlequins.

Eastmond was sent off for a 17th-minute tackle on Marcus Smith, having been cited moments earlier for a challenge on Ross Chisholm.

The 28-year-old was given two three-week bans after his guilty plea and clean record were taken into account.

The bans will be served consecutively, meaning he can return on 17 April.
