Racing Metro fly-half Jonathan Wisniewski has been banned for 20 days after being found guilty of a dangerous tackle in his side's Top 14 clash with Montpellier on January 2.

Wisniewski faced an LNR disciplinary panel on Thursday following the tackle on Argentinian winger Martin Bustos Moyano.

He has been replaced at fly-half by Argentinian playmaker Juan Martin Hernandez for this weekend's Heineken Cup clash with Clermont Auvergne, having kicked 12 points in Racing's 15-12 victory over Toulon on January 9.

Meanwhile, Toulon lock Jocelino Suta was also banned for 20 days after being sent off in their 20-9 Top 14 loss to Bayonne on December 29.

The 28-year-old will miss Sunday's European clash with Munster as a result.
