Leinster's Fergus McFadden has been hit with a three-week ban.

The winger is set to miss Leinster's title run-in after being found guilty of making a dangerous and high tackle on Edinburgh's Damien Hoyland.

 

The suspension effectively means that McFadden won't be able to play for Leinster again this season, unless the province reach the Pro12 final.

The Irish international had denied the charges but still has a right to appeal.
