Taulagi received a 10-week ban after being sent off during Agen’s European Challenge Cup defeat to Benetton Treviso.

Taulagi’s red card for a dangerous tackle on Benetton centre Marco Zanon in the 16-29 loss had been upheld and that it was considered “at the top end of World Rugby’s sanctions”.

However, the 27-year-old will now appeal the case, which will be, “heard by video conference on Wednesday, April 21 by an independent Appeal Committee comprising Sir James Dingemans (England), Chair, Leon Lloyd (England) and Yannick Jauzion (France),” the statement said.
