Worcester Warriors winger Bryce Heem will overlook the remainder of the growing season after being suspended for a hint tackle on the Paolo Odogwu of Sale.

Heem has been prohibited after contesting the charge at an RFU disciplinary panel hearing.

He was sin-binned for the tackle in the second half of Warriors’ 39-17 Premiership win against Sale.

Sale centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg has been prohibited for a week to get scrumhalf that was striking Francois Hougaard.

The ban handed to Heem means he has effectively played his final match for Worcester after revealing in February he’d not be renewing his contract in Sixways.

He’s tipped to join Top 14 club Toulon in the summer.
