France lock Paul Gabrillagues, centre, has been banned for six weeks and will miss the first three matches at the Rugby World Cup.

Lock Paul Gabrillagues will miss France’s first three Rugby World Cup pool games after he was suspended for six weeks for hitting a Scottish opponent’s head during an illegal charge into a ruck.

At a World Rugby disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, Gabrillagues admitted the offence was worthy of a red-card in the 16th minute of France’s 32-3 win against the Scots in Nice on Saturday.

He wasn’t sanctioned at the time but Gabrillagues was cited after the match. A three-man disciplinary committee deemed the incident intentional.

The offence carries a minimum sanction of 10 weeks but was reduced by 40 per cent after Gabrillagues admitted early guilt, apologised, and showed remorse, although he can appeal.
