The Tongan international received the red card for his dangerous tackle on Fraser Dingwall.

Kata’s ban means he could miss the remainder of Leicester’s regular season games but if he applies to undertake a World Rugby coaching intervention course, his suspension will be reduced to two matches.

Northampton went on to run in three unanswered tries to secure a 40-17 win.

The heavy derby defeat saw Tigers end the weekend eighth in the table and six points adrift of a play-off spot with three matches remaining.
