(Reuters) - Toulouse flanker Piula Faasalele has been hit with a seven-week ban for dangerous play and will miss four Top 14 matches and two European Champions Cup games.

The 30-year-old Samoan, punished for a dangerous tackle on Gabriel Ngandebe during a 66-15 defeat to Montpellier last month, will not return to action until Nov. 26.

Faasalele will miss Toulouse’s European Champions Cup pool matches in Bath on Oct. 13 and at home to Leinster a week later.
