Exeter prop Tomas Francis has been banned for two weeks after pleading guilty to a kicking charge.

The Wales international picked up his second red card in six months during Saturday's 36-25 win over Harlequins.

The 24-year-old admitted to a "low-end offence" of kicking scrum-half Danny Care and making contact with the head, which did not cause any injury.

He will miss the Premiership games with Bristol and Northampton and be available again on 3 October.
