The 30-year-old was sent off after 29 minutes by referee Alexandre Ruiz and cited under Law 9.13 (dangerous tackling).

A disciplinary panel in Paris today, chaired by France’s Philippe Cavaleiros, deemed Cipriani’s tackle on centre Rory Scannell worthy of a mid-range entry-point sanction and so proposed a six-week suspension.
The punishment was then reduced by the maximum allowable 50% due to the number 10′s clear on-field disciplinary record and a ‘timely expression of remorse’.
