Courtney Lawes has become the third England player to fined for wearing a branded mouthguard at the Rugby World Cup.
Lawes follows Manu Tuilagi and Lewis Moody in breaking the advertising guidelines during the tournament, which England crashed out of at the quarter-final stage to France.
The Northampton Saints second-row, who was banned for two matches during the pool stage for striking Argentina hooker Mario Ledesma with his knee in England's opening match, has been fined £5000.
