Northampton forward Salesi Ma'afu has been banned for a second time this season after pleading guilty to a charge of striking.

Ma'afu has been suspended for two weeks for his clash with Tom Court in Saints' Aviva Premiership win over London Irish at Franklin's Gardens last Friday.

The punishment was handed to the Australian following a Rugby Football Union disciplinary hearing.

Ma'afu, who will now miss games against Bath and Harlequins, was also banned for a week last month under the totting-up procedure.
