It does rule him out of the Champions Cup clash with Leinster.
England captain Owen Farrell has been given a five match ban for a high tackle playing for Saracens against Wasps last weekend.
It rules him out of the Champions Cup quarter final clash with Leinster at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday week, which is a repeat of last season's final.
Farrell faced an online disciplinary hearing last night to answer for the first red card of his career.
However, Farrell will be back in time for England when they resume their Six Nations campaign at the end of October.
Shocking swinging arm from Owen Farrell and deserved a red card. Decent ban coming too, I talked about his tackle technique on @TheRugbyPod previously and it was a case of when this happened not if..... pic.twitter.com/kpnkqjETrp— Andy Goode (@AndyGoode10) September 5, 2020
Meanwhile, the Irish Indepedent report that Leinster could rest half back duo Johnny Sexton and Luke McGrath for Saturday's Pro 14 Final against Ulster, with Ross Byrne and Jamison Gibson Park set to deputise.
