English Premiership leaders Northampton had to play more than half of their 26-23 victory a man down after Langdon was sent off in the 39th minute at Limerick’s Thomond Park on Saturday for reckless contact with the head of Thomas Ahern.

A disciplinary committee upheld the red card but added in a statement Wednesday they were waiting for notice of Langdon’s intended playing schedule before deciding which matches will be covered by his ban.

Both the player and tournament organisers European Professional Club Rugby have the right to appeal the decision.
