Brett Deacon has been suspended from playing by Leicester Tigers for one week following an internal disciplinary hearing.

Tigers officials have reviewed the incident in which back-rower Deacon was sent off during the second half of Saturday’s Aviva Premiership victory over Bath Rugby and found him guilty of striking an opponent.

A club statement said: “Brett has been banned for seven days and he will miss the Heineken Cup Round 3 match against Benetton Treviso this weekend.

“Brett regrets his actions which left his team with 14 men during the second half of a vital club match.”
