Neil Briggs

London Welsh hooker Neil Briggs has been given a three-week suspension by the RFU for foul play during Sunday's 31-26 defeat by Harlequins.

The 27-year-old was cited following an incident with Quins back Sam Smith during the match.

Briggs's ban means he will miss Welsh's games against Cavalieri Prato, Stade Francais and Harlequins, before his return to availability from 30 January.

Welsh are 10th in the Premiership, 10 points clear of bottom side Sale.
