Richard Haughton in action during the Sale clash

RICHARD HAUGHTON of London Wasps was today suspended for two weeks for dangerous play during the Aviva Premiership match against Sale Sharks at Adams Park on March 6.

The fullback pleaded guilty to lifting Will Cliff from the ground and dropping or driving him into the ground, contrary to Law 10(4)(j), following a report by the independent citing officer Alan Mansell.

Haughton appeared before the RFU Disciplinary Officer Judge Jeff Blackett and was banned from March 10 (the date London Wasps imposed an internal suspension) to March 23. He can play again on March 24.
