Gloucester's Danny Cipriani will face a disciplinary hearing in Paris on Wednesday after he was sent off for a dangerous tackle in his side's Champions Cup match against Munster.

The England international fly-half was dismissed for a dangerous tackle on Munster centre Rory Scannell during the first half in Limerick on Saturday.

And tournament organisers European Professional Club Rugby have announced that Cipriani's hearing will take place before a three-member independent disciplinary committee in Paris.

Cipriani, who was overlooked by England head coach Eddie Jones for next month's Tests against South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia, faces a potential ban.

A low-end scale entry punishment for his offence is a two-week suspension, rising to six for mid-range and anything between 10 and 52 weeks for top end.
