Sale's McGuigan to miss crunch European games following ban
Byron McGuigan has been given a three-week suspension following his red card in Sale’s defeat against Saracens last weekend.
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.
Scotland international McGuigan is set to be available again for the visit of Wasps on New Year’s Day.
