Wasps scrum-half Nick Berry has been suspended for three weeks for a dangerous tackle during November 7's A-team defeat to London Irish.

The Australian pleaded guilty after he was charged under Law 10 (4) (J) (lifting a player off the ground and dropping or driving that player into the ground whilst that player's feet are still off the ground, such that his head/upper body comes into contact with the ground first) over a tackle on opposite number Jack Moates.

Berry is free to play again on December 20.
