Richard Haughton was today suspended for dangerous play during the Aviva Premiership match against Sale Sharks at Adams Park on March 6.
The fullback pleaded guilty to lifting Will Cliff from the ground and dropping or driving him into the ground, contrary to Law 10(4)(j), following a report by the independent citing officer Alan Mansell.
Haughton appeared before the RFU Disciplinary Officer Judge Jeff Blackett and was banned from March 10 (the date London Wasps imposed an internal suspension) to March 23. He can play again on March 24.
Note: This case date had been incorrectly communicated by the RFU as March 22 and was instead heard on March 15.
