LONDON IRISH SCRUM-HALF Tomás O’Leary was banned for three weeks on Tuesday after being sent off in an English Premiership game against Wasps last weekend.

The 30-year-old Ireland international was dismissed for stamping on Wasps flanker James Haskell on Saturday.

O’Leary pleaded guilty to the offence at a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing in London on Tuesday, the RFU announced.

He cannot play again until March 11, which rules him out of the Exiles’ next two Premiership matches at home to Leicester and away against Exeter.

O’Leary was dismissed early in the second-half at Wasps’ Adams Park ground, but despite being a man down, Irish still won 23-20.
