Tom will miss Falcons clash; sport shorts rugby union.
LEICESTER and England hooker Tom Youngs has been suspended for three weeks following the red card he received playing against Exeter last Saturday.
The 32-year-old accepted the charge of dangerous play in a ruck or maul when he appeared before an independent disciplinary panel yesterday and the ban means he will miss Premiership trips to Newcastle and Harlequins.
Youngs was shown a red card by referee Tom Foley after making contact with Exeter lock Ollie Atkins' head during a ruck.
The panel decided Young's offence was worthy of a six-week ban but reduced that by half because of mitigating factors.
Youngs will be available for Leicester's last league game at home to Bath on May 18.
