Harlequins full-back Aaron Morris has been given a three-week ban for a reckless tackle on Leicester Tigers winger Adam Thompstone.

Morris was sin-binned after he took Thompstone out in the air during last Friday's 27-18 defeat by the Tigers.

After being cited, the 22-year-old pleaded not guilty at a Rugby Football Union hearing on Wednesday.

However, the governing body's three-man disciplinary panel found that the incident "warranted a red card".

"The Leicester player luckily sustained no serious injury and was able to play on. As such it was deemed a low end offence," a RFU statement added.external-link

Morris will be free to play again on Tuesday, 21 March.
