Sale centre Johnny Leota has been banned for two weeks, the Rugby Football Union has announced.

Leota was cited after being sin-binned for an off-the-ball tackle on Bath's Aled Brew during stoppage time of the Sharks' Aviva Premiership loss at the Recreation Ground last Friday.

The Samoan was found guilty by an RFU disciplinary panel and will be free to play again from October 25.
