Hala'ufia, the Tongan international, was cited following last Saturday's 11-11 draw at Twickenham, a result which ended the Exiles' Heineken Cup campaign.

The independent judicial officer Jean-Noel Couraud took into account Hala'ufia's admittance of guilty before banning him until February 25.

Both parties have the right to appeal.
