Exeter Chiefs winger Gonzalo Camacho has been hit with a three-week ban following his citing originating from April 14.
The winger was cited following a dangerous tackle on Worcester centre Alex Grove. The panel, chaired by Rick Charles with John Doubleday and Dan White, amended the charge and the player was charged and found guilty of a pick-up, tip-tackle.
Camacho, who pleaded guilty, can return to action on May 16. Exeter are currently fifth in the Premiership, one place and one point behind Northampton following their home defeat to the Saints on Sunday.
