Sale Sharks centre John Leota will appear before an RFU Disciplinary panel charged with dangerous tackling.

Leota received a yellow card from referee Tom Foley and was subsequently cited in last weekend’s Premiership match between Sale Sharks and Bath. 

The dangerous tackle was on Bath winger Aled Brew during stoppage time of the second half.

Leota will appear before a three-person RFU Discipline panel chaired by Anthony Davies (Chairman), John Greenwood and Adrian Senn in Haydock on Tuesday.
