Two-week ban for Canale

Italy centre Gonzalo Canale has been suspended for two weeks for a dangerous tackle on Simon Danielli in Saturday's 21-8 RBS 6 Nations defeat by Scotland.

Canale appeared before an independent Six Nations disciplinary committee in London where it was decided his offence was at the low end of severity.

The versatile Clermont Auvergne back is able to resume playing on April 4 and has the right of appeal.
