Exeter Chiefs prop Alec Hepburn has been banned for three games following his red card against Harlequins in Saturday’s Premiership fixture.

The 28-year-old was sent off for a tip tackle on fellow England international Joe Marler in the 14-12 defeat.

Hepburn will now miss Exeter’s Heineken Champions Cup ties against Glasgow and Montpellier, as well as their next Premiership match against London Irish.

The front-rower has scored seven tries in 145 appearances for the Chiefs.

Exeter sit sixth in the Premiership table, on 33 points after 12 games.
