London Irish lock Adam Coleman has been banned for three matches following his sending off for a dangerous tackle on Saturday against Saracens.

Australia international Coleman, 30, made contact with the head of Saracens back-row forward Jackson Wray in the first half of a 34-34 Premiership draw.

Coleman was seen on Tuesday by a Rugby Football Union disciplinary panel.

He accepted a dangerous tackling charge contrary to World Rugby Law 9.13 – and is free to return from 30 November.

Coleman will miss the Premiership Cup games with Northampton and Saracens – and the return to league action at Harlequins.
