DISCIPLINARY UPDATE: Sale Sharks fullback Mike Haley has been given a two-week suspension for striking Wasps’ Josh Bassett.

The 22-year-old, who is set to join Irish province Munster, pleaded guilty to the charge and was suspended for two weeks.

He is free to play again on May 1.

He was cited by independent citing commissioner Shaun Gallagher for striking Wasps’ Josh Bassett with his arm, contrary to Law 9.12.

The incident occurred in the 77th minute during Sale Sharks' narrow 28-27 win over Wasps last weekend.

Chair of the panel Gareth Graham said: "The player pleaded guilty to the charge and accepted that he had made contact with the head of an opponent.

"The panel were mandated to find this a mid-range entry point which carries a starting point of four weeks. The player pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity, apologised to the Wasps’ player and has a clear record, therefore, he was entitled to the maximum mitigation of 50 percent. The player is suspended for two weeks and is free to play again on the May 1,"

He is the second Sale Sharks player to be banned within a week.

England international Denny Solomona was banned for four weeks over an alleged homophobic slur during a Premiership match between Sale Sharks and Worcester Warriors.
