Fiji-born Wasps number eight Nathan Hughes has been suspended for six weeks which rules him out for three of England‘s end-of-year Tests next month.
This means he will not play in England’s upcoming internationals against South Africa, New Zealand and Japan.
He will be available for selection for England’s Test against Australia at Twinkenham on Saturday, November 24.
He was cited following the match between Wasps and Gloucester two weeks ago.
Hughes accepted the charge and was given a suspension by the independent panel.
