Beauxis & coach Cheika slapped with bans

Stade Francais outside-half Lionel Beauxis has been handed a 20-day ban for a spear tackle on Castres’ Pierre Bernard during a Top 14 match.

Beauxis received a yellow card for the tackle but the disciplinary committee of the national rugby league decided to further sanction the France international, who will now miss Stade’s upcoming league games against Brive and Perpignan.

Stade coach Michael Cheika also copped a 30-day suspension for his “behaviour” towards the referees at the end of the Castres match, which the Parisian side lost 34-12.
