Northampton Saints have taken the decision to ban flanker Calum Clark.

Clark had been cited by the RFU following alleged foul play in the LV= Cup final against Leicester Tigers on Sunday.

Video evidence appeared to show him pulling the arm of hooker Rob Hawkins before the Tigers man was forced to leave the pitch injured.

A statement from the club read: Northampton Saints has conducted an internal investigation regarding an alleged incident during last Sunday’s LV= Cup final.

“Following the completion of this investigation the club’s management has suspended Calum Clark from playing until further notice.

“Northampton Saints will make no further comment about this issue.”
