Gattas was dismissed by English referee Wayne Barnes during his team’s World Cup Pool D defeat against Georgia two days ago.

World Rugby said that Gattas attended a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday and sought to overturn the red card, but Barnes’ decision was upheld.

Gattas will miss Uruguay’s remaining group games against Australia and Wales as part of his suspension.

He is the fifth player to be banned at the tournament for a dangerous tackle.
