The Sharks back was given his marching orders for throwing opposition player Nick Tompkins to the floor by referee Tom Foley and appeared before an independent disciplinary panel on Tuesday.

McGuigan accepted a charge for reckless or dangerous play contrary to World Rugby Law 9.11 and will now sit out Sale’s next three fixtures against Ospreys, Clermont and Newcastle.
