England flanker Tom Curry has been banned for two matches after being sent off in the World Cup opener against Argentina.

Curry will miss the Pool C games against Japan and Chile following his sending off for a head-on-head collision with full-back Juan Cruz Mallía.

The offence carries a six-week suspension but it was reduced to three because of Curry’s good character, before having another week cut off for attending tackle school.
