White given three-game suspension
Julian White
White scored the winning try against London Irish last month
Leicester prop Julian White will miss his side's next three Premiership games after being suspended for punching Leinster lock Malcolm O'Kelly.

White was given a five-week ban until 25 February, back-dated to start on 21 January, after pleading guilty to the incident in a Heineken Cup tie.

His Tigers team-mates Andy Goode and Seru Rabeni have also been cited for dangerous tackles against Newcastle.

They face a disciplinary hearing in London on 5 February.

The pair were cited for tackles on Jonny Wilkinson and Jamie Noon respectively.

White had already been suspended by Leicester and missed the Newcastle game.

He will also sit out away games at Gloucester and London Irish and the home fixture with Sale.
