Elliot Daly has been banned

England back Elliot Daly has been banned for three weeks for the dangerous tackle against Argentina player, World Rugby said on Monday.

Daly was red carded for a dangerous tackle on Argentina attacker Leonardo Senatore, tackling him in the air and causing him to land on his head and shoulders.

“Mr Daly accepted that he had committed an act of foul play and that it warranted a red card and the Disciplinary Committee found that he had acted recklessly,” WR said in a statement.

Daly was given a six-week-ban. However, it halved because he acknowledged his wrongdoing and apologised to Senatore.
