Leicester Tigers center Kyle Eastmond was banned for four months following a fee to get a dangerous tackle at Saturday’s defeat by Bristol.

Eastmond, who had been ignored for the challenge on Bears’ Ian Madigan during the match, pleaded guilty at Tuesday’s independent disciplinary panel.

The 29-year-old overlooks both European games against Racing 92 and Premiership matches against Harlequins and Bath.

He’ll be available again for the Tigers on Tuesday, 1 January 2019.
