Leicester Tigers hooker George Chuter was suspended for eight weeks at an RFU disciplinary hearing on Tuesday evening.

Chuter pleaded guilty to stamping on an opponent in the Powergen Cup semi-final against London Wasps at The Millennium Stadium, Cardiff on March 4.

The hooker pleaded guilty to treading on Wasps rival Raphael Ibanez at a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing in London on Tuesday.


His ban currently lasts until 2 May, which means he will miss the Heineken Cup quarter-final against Bath, which kicks off in Walkers Stadium at 12:30 on 1 April.

The 29 year old lined out for Leicester Tiger in all of their Heineken Cup games this season, and has a tally of 25 appearances in the Heineken Cup.
