Sale Sharks loose forward Dan du Preez has been banned for three weeks for reckless play after he was cited following last weekend's 22-19 win at Gloucester in the Premiership last weekend.
The Springbok appeared before an online independent disciplinary panel on Wednesday.
Du Preez was cited for striking with shoulder, contrary to World Rugby law 9.12, or in the alternate reckless or dangerous play, contrary to World Rugby law 9.11.
He accepted the alternate charge and was given a three-week suspension by the independent disciplinary panel comprising Gareth Graham (chair) with Martyn Wood and Guy Lovgreen.
The four-Test capped forward is free to play again on 26 January which means he will miss Friday's league game at home to home to Worcester Warriors and the European Champions Cup matches against Edinburgh (16 January) and Toulon (22 January).
