LONDON (Reuters) - Gloucester fly-half Danny Cipriani has been served with a three-week suspension after being sent off for a high tackle in the Champions Cup defeat by Munster last week.

The 30-year-old was red-carded after his shoulder made contact with the head of Rory Scannell in the first half.

Cipriani will be available again for Gloucester's match against Leicester on Nov. 16.

His suspension comes a week after he was omitted from England head coach Eddie Jones' squad for the November internationals.
