RACING 92′S AUSTRALIA INTERNATIONAL Kurtley Beale will miss the European Champions Cup quarter-final against Clermont after receiving a three-week ban today for a Top 14 red card.

Beale, 31, was sent off for a dangerous tackle on France centre Arthur Vincent in Racing 92′s victory over Montpellier on his home debut on Friday.

If Racing beat Clermont on Saturday, he will be sidelined for a semi-final the following weekend against Leinster or defending champions Saracens.

The French league’s disciplinary commission opted against the maximum six-week sanction due to the “absence of aggravating factors” and Beale’s acceptance of the blame and remorse.

Racing can appeal the decision within seven days.
