Edinburgh loosehead prop Pierre Schoeman has been banned for four weeks after he was sent off in his side’s defeat to Leinster last Saturday for an elbow to the face of Dan Leavy.

After a review by a disciplinary panel the South African will spend four weeks on the sidelines for the incident which saw him lead with his forearm into Leavy’s face when carrying into contact, in what was virtually an elbow into the jaw.

The Leinster man had to undergo a HIA afterwards and didn’t reappear on the pitch meaning his seasonal debut was cut short after just 10 minutes.

Leinster ran out convincing winners at the RDS on a scoreline of 31-10 and Leavy will undergo the graduated return-to-play protocols.
