Seveali'i suspended for two weeks

London Irish's Elvis Seveali'i has been banned for two weeks for a dangerous tackle on Bath's Sam Vesty in a recent Aviva Premiership match.

The centre was cited following the encounter at the Recreation Ground on September 11 and pleaded guilty before an RFU disciplinary panel on Tuesday.

"Elvis Seveali'i of London Irish was this afternoon suspended for two weeks for lifting Bath Rugby's Sam Vesty and dropping or driving his head and/or upper body first into the ground whilst he was off his feet," read an RFU statement.

Seveali'i is suspended from September 16 - the date of an internal suspension by London Irish - until September 29.
