David Halaifonua and Riccardo Brugnara given two-week bans for weekend offences

Gloucester winger David Halaifonua and Leicester prop Riccardo Brugnara have both been handed two-week suspensions by the Rugby Football Union.

Tonga international Halaifonua was sent off following a dangerous high tackle on Wasps' second-row Bradley Davies during Sunday's Aviva Premiership defeat match at the Ricoh Arena.

Brugnara, meanwhile, was cited after the loose-head prop was given a yellow card for kicking Jack Yeandle of Exeter Chiefs during the Tigers' 19-6 defeat at Sandy Park on Saturday.

Both players will be free to play again on November 23.
