The case was heard by a panel of His Honour Judge Jeff Blackett (Chairman), Jeremy Summers and Elizabeth Riley at the Royal Courts of Justice yesterday.
Judge Blackett said:
"The tackle was deemed to warrant a mid-range sanction entry point of eight weeks which was then increased to reflect the recent IRB memorandum dealing with such cases and subsequently reduced by three weeks to take account of mitigating factors.
"Unless we continue to apply these sanctions to this type of tackle we will not change the behaviour of players and reduce the potential risk of catastrophic injury."
The panel dismissed a Tip Tackle charge against Gloucester's Tukulua Lokotui, who was cited following the same match. He is free to play on.
