Steyn banned for four weeks

Frans Steyn has been handed a four-week ban for his dangerous tackle on Leinster's Johnny Sexton during Montpellier's Champions Cup clash last weekend.

Steyn was red-carded just before the half-hour mark of his team's heavy defeat, and will now only be able to return to action after 6 March.

Meanwhile, Leinster's Hayden Triggs was suspended for three weeks for making contact with the eye area of Montpellier scrumhalf Nic White.
