Saracens centre Alex Lozowski has been banned for two weeks for entering a ruck dangerously - but will be free to feature in England's autumn Test campaign.

The 25-year-old was cited twice following Saracens' 13-3 Champions Cup win over Glasgow at Scotstoun on Sunday.

He was suspended for the ruck complaint, while he was cleared over the charge of a dangerous tackle.

Lozowski will miss Saracens' European home clash with Lyon on Saturday and the Premiership fixture with Leicester a week later.
