Bath and England full-back Anthony Watson has been handed a two-week ban by the Rugby Football Union following his red card against Saracens.

The 22-year-old pleaded guilty to tackling Sarries’ Alex Goode in the air and unsportsmanlike conduct in his club’s 30-10 defeat on April 1.

Watson admitted to using offensive, inappropriate and unprofessional language towards the fourth official.

He will miss home and away Premiership games against Sale Sharks.

But he will be available to face Northampton Saints on April 30.
