Leicester Tigers announced that they have handed a two-week suspension to their lock Ed Slater following their 0-43 defeat to Glasgow Warriors in the European Champions Cup clash at Welford Road on Saturday.
A statement released by the Aviva Premiership club stated that an internal review conducted by the club officials found Slater to be guilty of striking an opponent during the game.
The defeat to Glasgow Warriors was also Leicster Tigers' worst in the European tournament, surpassing the 0-38 loss they suffered to Munster earlier in the season.
In a statement, the Tigers said: "Ed has been banned for two weeks and he will miss the (Anglo-Welsh) Cup ties against Northampton Saints and Saracens.
"He regrets his actions in the heat of a vital club match and will look forward to his return to action following his suspension."
Leicester Tigers managed only eight points in the six matches of the European Champions Cup which saw them crash out of the tournament.
