Johnny Leota could face a suspension after being cited for dangerous tackling in Sale's 30-3 Aviva Premiership defeat at Bath on Friday night.

Centre Leota was sin-binned for a challenge off the ball on Bath's Aled Brew, but will now face a Rugby Football Union (RFU) hearing in Haydock on Tuesday night.

Leota will appear before a three-person RFU discipline panel chaired by Anthony Davies, and also comprising John Greenwood and Adrian Senn.
