Koyamaibole hit with two-week ban

Sale Sharks number eight Sisa Koyamaibole has been suspended for two weeks by a Rugby Football Union disciplinary panel for kicking Saracens scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth.

The incident occurred during Sale's 28-22 victory over Saracens at Edgeley Park on January 2, and was reported by independent citing officer Matt Bayliss.

The three-man RFU panel chaired by Antony Davies sat on Tuesday night in Haydock and Fijian Koyamaibole pleaded guilty to the offence. His ban means he must miss Friday's Amlin Cup clash with Petrarca and the match against Cetransa El Salvador in the same competition on Saturday, January 22.
